I love this book! I think I’ve been looking for this electronics book for a long time! I’m a ham radio operator, and an electronics hobbyist with no formal training in the subject, so I seem to always learn everything the hard way. Well, Simon Monk has put together a book that should become a real must have item for people like me. You could be a rank beginner, or an old hand, and still find a world of things in this book that you need to know, or projects you want to try.If you’ve always wanted to get into electronics as a hobby, this book will help you get started with the very basics. If, on the other hand, you’ve been tinkering with Arduino for a long time, and are interested in some new, fresh projects, then this is for you, too. Another thing I like is that, in this book, Simon Monk has helped me get outside the box with electronic projects. Let me explain: Even though I’ve played around with microcontrollers for a few years, I’ve bought several books that I hoped would help me…

Fantasic Hacking Electronics is a very enjoyable and informative book that I haven’t been able to put down. It gives practical easy to follow advise on all the basic knowledge that an electronics enthusiast would be lost without and enough wacky projects to keep me busy for a while. This is book is an essential read if your just starting out in the world of electronics up to a seasoned maker, hacker , tinkerer like myself. 🙂 A+
