Question What DIY/ELECTRONICS Books Are In Your Library?

I just thought it might be beneficial for some of us if everyone listed the books they have in their DIY/ELECTRONICS library...

I will take out some time this afternoon and post mine, what do you have, also if you found one or more books particularly good please post comments along with your list.

Oh and post everything would you please, like for instance one of the first electronics books, if you can call it that, I ever purchased and still have (I lost many in a nasty divorce) was;

Radio Shack
Engineer's Mini-Notebook
Op Amp/IC Circuits
by Forrest M. Mims III
276-5011

Not much to say here but it was very helpful at one time.

Thanks

Nice topic, maybe it is a good idea to also give some rating of the book. Is it good/helpfull and also the level (novice, medium, advanced)

I have the Dutch version of :
"The Art of Electronics" from Horowitz and Hill (part 1 and 3).

I think its "medium" level (maybe their is a better word for it). However I think some topics are a bit hard to folow (too much condensed to get a real good understanding).

Default Good books

Hi folks,
I seemed to have collected a few good books aver the last couple of years :

Valve Amplifiers , Morgan Jones.
Comprehensive, biased toward push-pull circuits.

Beginners Guide to Audio Design, Bruce Rozenblit.
A good book to start your collection.

How to Build Electronic Equipment, J.Richard Johnson.
A 1962 vintage classic. Very practical.and highly relevant still today.

The Best of Audion, Luciano Macri.
Excellent selection of projects to build with schematics, parts lists
and layout drawings/photos.

Glass Audio Projects. (www.audioXpress.com)
17 vacuum tube designs similar to Audion above, in magazine style.

Practical Electronics For Inventors, Paul Scherz.
A textbook with a difference for everything except valves.

I am satisfied with all these books and don't know of any others I would need, although I still collect circuits etc off the web.

Regards,
Paul.

Some of these books I have not heard of, so now I will do some research and perhaps add a few to my collection. Thanks for the input!
