The first time I picked up the book (Plate 4) and looked at the title I thought NO?

Plate 4 Clive Maxfield's "Bebop to the Boolean Boogie"

When you investigate some of the chapters in more detail it does provide the information in an easily understandable manner with a slab of humour, the title indicates that. There are many simple analogies to help the reader understand some of the complexities of electronics from the start, voltage, current and onto the future technologies.

You would not think a book like this would cover different PCB types like multichip modules, 3D substrates, chip on board and area array components. I cannot see it as selling to the engineer, but colleges and universities may benefit as a good and informative introductory textbook.
