Those books listed above look great for someone like me, who designs amps for a living, but they are most probably above the level brought forth here on this website. 'The Art of Electronics' is a pretty good general text on many aspects of electronic engineering. I have never seen a really good book on amp design, the closest being Ben Duncan' s book on amplifier design.

Ben Duncan's book contains some astonishing errors, particularly in his chapter on negative feedback...

...in some instances, his assertions are transparently untrue....

For my money, you can't beat "The Art of Electronics".

I agree, Nelson. I have found it amazingly informative. Ben's book is somewhat flawed, but I have not studied it in detail.

"The Art of Electronics" is ok for those who want to learn som basic electronic design, BUT is way to basic for those who would lika to learn advanced electronics.

I suggest that beginers start by learning solid state physics, in order to get a deeper understandning of how semiconductor devices work.

"Semiconductor devices, physics and Technolgy"(S. M. Sze) is an excellent book.

I all ready have that book The Art of Electronics and i like that book but it isnt my favorite.

Does any one have a copy of Introduction to Electroacoustics and Audio Amplifier Design, Third Edition by Professor W. Marshall Leach, Jr.?

Because that is the next book im thinking of purchasing along with Electronic Design From Concept to Reality fourth Edition.

I have never found that KNOWING how transistors work is very important. It is how they BEHAVE, in a circuit, that is most important. The physics of a transistor is interesting, but like knowing how the inside of of human body works, not important in working with people. I STILL don't really know how a transistor works. Not well enough to design one.
