Summary

There is truly a lack of good, basic hardwire electronic "how-to" books. The market seems interested in this type of fun project compilation. This is another book in our extremely successful "Evil Genius" series. So far, each of the books has sold about $50,000 in less than 3 months.The perfect addition to our "Evil Genius" series, this book details everything an electronics hobbyist would want to know about circuits and circuit design through 57 Lessons. Readers work through 5 distinct, useful projects to reinforce their learning.

Author Biography

Dave Cutcher (Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA) is a technology, electronics and industrial teacher. He is also an avid electronics hobbyist, and a member of the Vancouver Robotics Club. Dave has offered many fellow teachers various parts of this book to help as instructional guides. He has received much praise, and has been urged to officially publish it.
