After four months of effort we've got a first draft of a monster index; we'll be cleaning it up, adding plenty more terms, etc., but if you want to see it in its current 50-page form, there's a link on the main page, at

suggestions happily accepted -- please send them to me at horowitz@physics.harvard.edu

Kudos for putting the extra effort into the index -- too many otherwise-good books are handicapped by a one or two page index that was clearly just an afterthought.  :-+

That said, the Subject Index in my AoE3 edition starts on page 1171, not page 1211 as your new one does... while at the same time your new page entry for 'Abbreviations' is 1170, only four pages later than mine (1166).   What goes between the end of 'Abbreviations' and the beginning of the index?

Taking user notes, probably. It's probably a way to store your important notes inside the book itself.

I didn't know these so many cases. I thought modern printing would avoided them.

Back to topic...

Any more errata? What about the digital AoE3? What about The X Chapters? What about a Digital version of the latest Learning the Art of Electronics? How's the book?

Usually its because in the days of printed books there may not be enough material to fill that page after edits are made to the manuscript so something as simple as a font change, or a resized diagram.  Rare its a placeholder for newer material; its almost never there for readers to take notes.  Sometimes automated machine is programmed for a fixed number of pages and thus inserts blank pages for the run.

I agree, we'll edit the section.


Just stumbled upon some further bandgap history/references.

Bob Pease in "The Design of Band-Gap Reference Circuits: Trials and Tribulations" introduces the two-transistor bandgap reference, referring to it as "The Brokaw cell.....attributed to Paul Brokaw[3]", the reference being: "3. AD580 Data Sheet, Analog Devices, Inc., 1975."

The AD580 would appear to be the first commercial IC to use the topology. It was initially introduced in 1974 in the 8-2 issue of Analog Dialogue:

Just picked up the 3rd edition, and even being fairly new to electronics, the read is amazing.  It reads like a textbook, but advances to different subjects quicker, so it keeps me reading longer!

Just got a nice typeset version of the FINAL updated index (actually, 2 indexes: Subject, and Parts), it's the work of about 5 months (!), and it's posted now on our website on the front page (artofelectronics.net).  It's not yet in printed editions or in the Kindle edition.  It's got LOTS more entries, quite useful.

Very nice, both to look at and to use.

Clearly the authors want to - and know how to - help the readers.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.

this comes up

https://www.amazon.com/Learning-Art-Electronics-Hands--Course/dp/0521177235

and it says 1st edition   SO my question is -- which is right ?  1st or 3rd

thanks

Well, that's why Amazon offers free return shipping and full refund in case you are not satisfied.

No it is a typo  - I am sure it is 1st and they wrote 3rd.  Typos on web pages drive me nuts.

For "Learning the Art of Electronics", 1st edition would appear to be correct.  See http://learningtheartofelectronics.com

The links there do not say 3rd edition for "Learning the Art of Electronics".

 Learning the Art of Electronics 3rd Edition  =  3rd edition for "Learning the Art of Electronics   ??

(it is like reading the fine print)  You have to know we are talking about 2 books not 1   :-DD  One book is the 3rd ed and one is the 1st ed.


I forgot to say it is nice having the author come to this site  :-+

Oops, spoke too soon -- the good news: the indexes (parts, and subject) we put up on artofelectronics.net on Nov 20 are thorough (footnote: "Please see him, Jeffrey.  He's a good man, and thorough."); the bad news: the pages are all off by -10% (weird, right?); the good-again news: they're really correct, now.  Discard previous, live happy.

Any news about "The X Chapters" addition book?

When will the new editions going to have the improved indexes?

What about the upcoming online edition?

Any hopes to have the "The Definitive Edition With X Chapters and everything else, this time is true" Edition? :)

Any hopes to read your books in ereaders that use ePub and not from Amazon Empire?

Yes, please.

I got the 3rd edition 1 year ago and had read the whole thing by the end of January. It was a really frustrating experience to see "see chapter Nx" for just about everything that looked like it was a tasty morsel of new information. To be still waiting for that hunger for information to be satisfied over a year after the 3rd Edition was published is tantamount to torture.
Anybody got a syringe I can use to squeeze the magic smoke back into this?

A few bits of news, if y'all are interested:
1. the x-chapters book is growing nicely, but we want it to be wonderfuller, so please be patient; lot's of goodstuff in there...
2. we are told that Cambridge Univ Press is now moving seriously toward an online version, but that's likely to be another year (we think)
3. a bit of excitement a couple of weeks ago -- a warehouse in California was raided, they found 4-5 pallets of counterfeit AoE3 copies -- cool!
4. we hope the full index will appear in some future printing, but for now it's posted in full on our website at:
    artofelectronics.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/subject_index_final_30nov16.pdf  (there's also a full index of parts, by number)
5. we're not sure the reason, but Amazon is currently selling the book for US$60 to prime members; we bought a few, they are the latest (10th) printing, and authentic ("Ships from and sold by Amazon.com exclusively for Prime members.")

that's all for now,
paul

I agree.  I'd hate to see this become a trend.  It's weak sauce.

Got something to say?  Put it online, or in a book.  Got something else to say?  Put it online, or in the next book.  In my line of work, unresolved forward references are errors.

If it follows its older sibling's example, we would read the X-chapters on our iPhoneX with 7G technology.

The bad news: An old friend of mine has been told he may not have long to live.
The good news: He offloaded a pile of books to me yesterday. Among them is tAoE vol2. So now I have my old Vol 1, and vol 2.

I guess I should buy Vol 3. But reading this thread learned about the X-chapters, so will wait till that's available too. I hate 'broken links.'

Oh, and some of the books are duplicates (I have already.) I'll be putting those up on buy/sell here, as giveaways.
