Tell us about yourself!
I was hoping to find this to thank you! I first read this when it first came out and I never had a interest in Electronics before this so I had to learn everything from the start. After reading this I searched around for the best electronics kit I could use to get some practical experience and learn more and a found the Make: Electronics Book and Kit by Charles Platt https://www.amazon.com/Make-Electronics-Component-... which worked great like you said I never felt on my own learning because I was able to ask the writer Charles questions and found help on forums online as well as other inscrutables, but it was you that got me starter!
No problem at all! I am happy to be helpful where I can, and that book and component kit make learning electronics easy and fun! Enjoy.
