The thoroughly revised and updated second edition of the hugely successful first edition.
**** The first edition (1980) is cited in BCL3. A remarkably successful book (Cambridge reports sales of 125,000 copies of the first edition in eight languages). Emphasizes the methods actually used by circuit designers--a combination of basic laws, rules of thumb and a large bag of tricks. Retains the informality and easy access that characterized the first. Responding to the rapid changes in electronics, they offer many new tables as well as new and revised topics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
