    Depends really what aspect of electronics you're looking for and what
    methods work for you. I'm a student reading Electronics Engineering
    so have access to a whole library of books on the subject. The best
    piece of advice that I've been given is to read in a book about a topi
    that you understand well; if you understand the authour on this topic,
    the chances are you'll also understand the authour's style when
    reading more complex topics. The following are two very general books
    that I've found useful:

    Electronic devices and circuit theory / Robert Boylestad, Louis
    Nashelsky 8th Ed. Upper Saddle River, N.J. : Prentice Hall, 2002
    Circuits, devices, and systems : a first course in electrical
    engineering / Ralph J. Smith, Richard C. Dorf 5th ed. New York :
    Wiley, 1992.

    Hope that this helps, if you need more information, don't hesitate to

    Ed's absolutely right -- he's the best for beginners.

    But look at Amazon under Forrest Mims. ;-)

    Everything of his I've read has given me my money's worth and then
    some. His writing style and back-of-the-napkin drawing style are
    easily understandable to even total newbies.

    If you have to choose only one book by Mims, pick "Getting Started in
    Electronics". If you need help with the math and schematics, get
    "Electronic Formulas, Symbols & Circuits".

    By the way, the estimable Mr. Mims is still active in electronics, and
    he occasionally graces this newsgroup with his presence.
