If you took the way-back machine to the 1980s, the Holy Grail would have to
be " The Art Of Electronics " by Horowitz & Hill ( ISBN: 0 521 37095 7 ). It
is also a favorite of some others on this list ( like Tony ). I cannot think
of a better single source of technical information. I got mine used on
Amazon for a song.
Best regards, Steven
