There are many excellent books available that cover all aspects of electronics, ranging from hands-on projects to advanced theory. This is a short list of some of them. I own copies of all of these, and over the years some of them have become a bit worn. Nonetheless, I don’t think I could pick a list of favorites, since I consider all of them to be valuable references and good sources of inspiration. If you want to acquire any of these for yourself, be sure to check and see if there is a more recent edition available, although you can save some money by opting for an older used book.
And, yes, there is indeed a shameless plug in here for my own book on instrumentation. Since I drew from it for writing this book, I felt it was proper to acknowledge it.
