Practical Electronics for Inventors

The book known as Horiwitz and Hill hasn't been revised for about 25 years, but is still regarded as the Bible of electronics. Rumours abound of a new version (and have done for years...)
The Art of Electronics

I wonder that as well cloverfield - 'The Art Of Electronics' Kindle edition is priced at double the paperback version on Amazon :o

Mind you, on this web site the hardback version is £53 and quoted as £65.99 standard retail, so perhaps you are getting an absolute bargain with the Amazon paperback & hardback versions 8-)

EDIT: Just worked it out - the paperback and hardback versions on Amazon are 'used' copies :headbang:

Just as an FYI, in the UK ebooks are subject to VAT and paper ones aren't.
Because...
