    I give this book five stars because it does a very important job on knowledge spreading. It is true that you'll get no new knowledge here everything written here is already explained elsewhere. So why do I rate this as a five? Basically because it is a bridge between two main areas that keep separated on and on. On one side you've got the electronic geeks on the other the computer programming nerds. This book does a great job at bringing this two fields of knowledge close to each other. The appr I give this book five stars because it does a very important job on knowledge spreading. It is true that you'll get no new knowledge here everything written here is already explained elsewhere. So why do I rate this as a five? Basically because it is a bridge between two main areas that keep separated on and on. On one side you've got the electronic geeks on the other the computer programming nerds. This book does a great job at bringing this two fields of knowledge close to each other. The approach is a bottom up one and you'll be exposed to the most elementary theory of electricity in a very clear, concise and intelligent way. Science was not sacrificed as a way to get easily into simplicity but instead was exploited to glue together several core concepts that are usually hidden behind mathematical formulas and unnecessary fancy formalism. References for more formal and advanced topics are given and the reader are encouraged to investigate deeper some of the concepts and ideas. For all this reasons I give a five to this book and truly recommend this reading to everyone who's interested in how computers work right before we, programmers, start to give them instructions.
