In this part . . .

Do you have a burning desire to understand what makes electronic devices tick? Have you been curious to know how speakers speak, motors move, and computers compute? Well, then, you’ve come to the right place!

In the chapters ahead, we explain exactly what electronics is, what it can (and does) do for you, and how all sorts of electronic devices work. Don’t worry: We don’t bore you with long essays involving physics and mathematics — even though we could. We use analogies and down-to-earth examples involving water, marbles, and desserts to make it easy — fun, even — to understand. And, while you’re enjoying yourself, you gain a fairly deep understanding of how electronic components work and combine forces to make amazing things happen.
