You'll get charged up as you transform theory into action in chapter after chapter!

Circuit basics — learn what voltage is, where current flows (and doesn't flow), and how power is used in a circuit

Critical components — discover how resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, and transistors control and shape electric current

Versatile chips — find out how to use analog and digital integrated circuits to build complex projects with just a few parts

Analyze circuits — understand the rules that govern current and voltage and learn how to apply them

Safety tips — get a thorough grounding in how to protect yourself—and your electronics—from harm

Open the book and find:

- How tiny parts manipulate current

- A hands-on exploration of popular components

- Why Ohm's and other laws are so important

- How transistors amplify and switch current

- What a 555 timer chip can do (a lot!)

- The ins and outs of digital electronics

- Step-by-step instructions for constructing circuits

- Fun projects you can build quickly
