Make: Electronics (Learning by Discovery)
How to Have Fun with This Book
Everyone uses electronic devices, but most of us don’t really know what goes on inside them.
Of course, you may feel that you don’t need to know. If you can drive a car without understanding the workings of an internal combustion engine, presumably you can use an iPod without knowing anything about integrated circuits. However, understanding some basics about electricity and electronics can be worthwhile for three reasons:
• By learning how technology works, you become better able to control your world instead of being controlled by it. When you run into problems, you can solve them instead of feeling frustrated by them.
• Learning about electronics can be fun—so long as you approach the process in the right way. The tools are relatively cheap, you can do all the work on a tabletop, and it doesn’t consume a lot of time (unless you want it to).
• Knowledge of electronics can enhance your value as an employee or perhaps even lead to a whole new career.
Learning by Discovery
Most introductory guides begin with definitions and facts, and gradually get to the point where you can follow instructions to build a simple circuit.
This book works the other way around. I want you to start putting components together right away. After you see what happens, you’ll figure out what’s going on. I believe this process of learning by discovery creates a more powerful and lasting experience.
