    Can anybody recommend a good, fairly readable textbook concerning
    solid-state physics/electronic devices.

    I have a good microelectronics book, but it doesn't include any theory about
    how and why diodes, BPJs, etc. work the way they do.

    Thanks,
    Omega Red

    This was covered on slashdot a few weeks ago:

    My favorite is the GE Transistor Manual,
    long out of print but available on ebay

    In my class on this at university, we use this book:

    My favorite: "Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits", by
    Gray and Meyer (in its 3rd edition, now), published by Wiley.

    It starts out with alot of high level math to explain the basic PN
    junction, but don't let that scare you -- they still do a great job of
    explaining the basic operation of the diode junction, then BJT's, then
    FETs, and MOSFETs. They have alot of practical examples, as well.
