The first edition of Make: Electronics established a new benchmark for introductory texts. This second edition enhances that learning experience with all updated and new experiments journying from the basics up to programming Arduino Microcontrollers by the end of Chapter 5 it is clear why Make: Electronics 2nd Ed is the best selling book on the market today for a beginner looking to learn basic electronic principals, circuit design, and now even microcontrollers and automation!

"This is teaching at its best!" 

--Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 timer (the world's most successful integrated circuit), and author of Much Ado About Almost Nothing: Man's Encounter with the Electron

"A fabulous book: well written, well paced, fun, and informative. I also love the sense of humor. It's very good at disarming the fear. And it's gorgeous. I'll be recommending this book highly."

--Tom Igoe, author of Physical Computing and Making Things Talk

A "magnificent and rewarding book. ... Every step of this structured instruction is expertly illustrated with photos and crisp diagrams. . . . This really is the best way to learn."

--Kevin Kelly, in Cool Tools
 

Here you will find unique, photographically precise diagrams of breadboarded components, to help you build circuits with speed and precision. A new shopping guide and a simplified range of components, will minimize your investment in parts for the projects. A completely new section on the Arduino shows you how to write properly structured programs instead of just downloading other people's code. Projects have been reworked to provide additional features, and the book has been restructured to offer a step-by-step learning process that is as clear and visually pleasing on handheld devices as it is on paper. Full color is used throughout.

As before, Make: Electronics begins with the basics. You'll see for yourself how components work--and what happens when they don't. You'll short out a battery and overheat an LED. You'll also open up a potentiometer and a relay to see what's inside. No other book gives you such an opportunity to learn from real-life experiences.

Ultimately, you will build gadgets that have lasting value, and you'll have a complete understanding of how they work. From capacitors to transistors to microcontrollers--it's all here.

Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 Timer (the world's most successful integrated circuit chip), said that "This is teaching at its best!" when he reviewed the first edition. Now the second edition offers even more!

What's New in Make Electronics - 2nd Edition

 

"While there are some things that have barely changed at all," says author Charles Platt, "others are significantly different in this edition. The new visuals are undoubtedly the thing that readers will notice first. There's color on every page now, with over 350 images.

"A new simplified section provides detailed advice on Internet searches and purchasing components," Charles says. "I think it's a lot easier to understand than the first book, but it's still completely hands-on. Every other book on electronics starts with theory, but I start with putting a battery on your tongue—just as with the original book."
