Unfortunately there are some errors in the pre-order information that went out on the Internet. The retail price is actually $60 US. I hope you'll still buy it :-). I'll have a box of them with me at RMAF.

Best regards,
Bob

In that case, I'll avail myself of Amazon's "pre-order price guarantee" and order very soon for the current asking price of $26.40. I trust your royalty won't be affected...

Mine is pre-ordered at $26, with shipping about $33. If that's their current guaranteed price, ya'll better hop on board before the bean-counters discover their mistake!

I'd buy Mr. Curl's book, too.

Congrats on your book , Bob. If it is in the same style as your DIYA interviews , I might be game for a rare purchase. Speaking of interviews , they are invaluable resources for those who are in pursuit of rock solid amplifier design and are presented in a non-confrontational /easily digested format , very rare indeed on this forum.

Hi ostripper,

Thanks very much for your kind words. I do believe you will perceive it to be in that style. I've tried very hard to write a book that can appeal to and be useful to the newbie while going very deep at the same time. That can be quite a challenge. Although you all know that I have opinions, I have also sought to touch on both sides of most issues in a fair way. For example, some will be surprized to see that I have a chapter that covers the design of amplifiers with no negative feedback and amplifiers with wide open-loop bandwidth.

Cheers,
Bob

No global NFB or no NFB at all?

Cheers,
