Bob Pease is one of the legends of analog design. Over the years, he's developed techniques and methods to expedite the often-difficult tasks of debugging and troubleshooting analog circuits. Now, Bob has compiled his "battle-tested" method in the pages of this book. Based on his immensely popular series in EDN Magazine, the book contains a wealth of new material. Every chapter has been expanded, and two new chapters and several useful appendices have been added. Numerous tables summarizing troubleshooting approaches for various components are another welcome addition.

I was a component level electronics repair (ET) in the navy in the 70's. This book is written with a minimum of Math and a maximum of real world knowledge by a man "in the trenches".
While the
previous reviewer seemed to dislike The writer's style (How does one ever really know someone Else's motivation?) I found it straightforward and unassuming.
This book is a TREASURE.
