Descrições do Produto
Sobre o Autor
Michael Jay Geier has been an electronics technician, designer and inventor since age 6. He took apart everything he could get his hands on, and soon discovered that learning to put it back together was even more fun. By age 8, he operated a neighborhood electronics repair service that was profiled in The Miami News. He went on to work in numerous service centers in Miami, Boston and Seattle, frequently serving as the “tough dog” tech who solved the cases other techs couldn’t. At the same time, Michael was a pioneer in the field of augmentative communications systems, helping a noted Boston clinic develop computer speech systems for children with cerebral palsy. He also invented and sold an amateur radio device while writing and marketing software in the early years of personal computing.
Michael holds an FCC Extra-class amateur radio license. His involvement in ham radio led to his writing career, first with articles for ham radio magazines, and then with general technology features in Electronic Engineering Times, Desktop Engineering, IEEE Spectrum, and The Envisioneering Newsletter. His work on digital rights management has been cited in several patents. Michael earned a Boston Conservatory of Music degree in composition, was trained as a conductor, and is an accomplished classical, jazz and pop pianist, and a published songwriter. Along with building and repairing electronic circuitry, he enjoys table tennis, restoring antique mopeds, ice skating, bicycling, and banging out a jazz tune on his harpsichord.

In reality, what I needed was a holistic approach that narrated the circuit and the signals that are manipulated. I NEVER thought of circuits this way and the author was able to explain that the active elements are the players in the story and everything else is a supporting cast.
I could read a schematic, but I couldn't understand why the components were there. I know that a capacitor doesn't pass DC, but now I see that when placed in the circuit, it acts as a DC filter to remove noise before passing a signal to the next stage.
On top of all that, I realized that every circuit has a voltage that is used as a signal. Signal analysis, analog and digital, seemed like a very advanced topic that I only understood through major concepts (linearity, aliasing, etc). Now I realize that a battery and a light bulb has a signal just as a digital video camera does. One is just more complex.
Bottom line, this is the book that I couldn't put down...and it is about some of the driest material you can find. It is written in a fun and enjoyable fashion. Every page had an "AH HA!" moment and I am much more confident in my electronics hobby and profession.
I cannot recommend this book enough and I would pay triple just for the section where the author walks through a couple sample circuits, describes each component's function, and what would happen if that component failed.
Now for the bad, which has nothing to do with the book. The bad thing is that acquiring all the necessary, and a good chunk of the "cool" tools, will run into the thousands. You also have to have a dedicated work area, so if you are short on space already... Finally, it takes time to troubleshoot and repair things. If you are retired, no problem. But if you have to make a living, it will be much cheaper and easier to have someone do the repair for you or just buy a whole new item (depending on the problem).
If you get satisfaction from learning and tinkering, get this book. If you are curious about this sort of thing, but can't afford the tools, space, or time, you might get the book anyway to learn what you can. If you just want to "save money" by doing your own repair work, I'd say do it the easy way. Pay for repair, or buy new stuff when your old stuff poops out.
Overall this is a decent book with a lot of useful information. For the sake of context, I should state that I'm fairly new to electronics and electronics repair. It's an interest that started a couple years ago along with my interest in vintage music gear and a desire to know how to repair simple issues. That said, it feels like the ideal target audience for this book seems to be individuals with at least an intermediate skill level in electronics. If you're a junior repair technician, this book will probably be exactly what you are looking for. For beginners and novices this book will be still useful but you will likely be lost in places. Fortunately there is a useful glossary that helps in some instances. Overall, most of the topics covered assume the reader has a reasonable foundation in electronics.
