Hello,

For the beginning let me say that this is by far the best book on electronics I've ever read. The style is so clear that I actually like reading it. Not being attacked with tens of calculus formulas surely has its merits :) And the fact that it is free makes the whole thing just perfect.
My question: is the author still working on the book? Are there any updates ready? I made it to part III and it feels weird to see all those "pending" or "not complete" phrases getting so dense :( So, please let me know the status of the whole thing. I'm just curios. And very unpacient :)
Thank you for your wonderful work.

Tony Kuphaldt, the original author, is no longer working on the series of "Lessons in Electricity" volumes. Will he will be back in a few years? I don't know. For the next few years he is too busy with other professional and personal projects. See his previous posts to this forum.

In the mean time, I am working on Volume four, Digital. One chapter, "Karnaugh Mapping", was added about the middle of the year. I have been working on the "Shift Registers" Chapter. It may be out in about a month with minor revisions to other volumes. I may be done with the missing chapters in another year in the Digital volume. At that Time, I would look at the Semiconductor volume missing sections.

The major application of Tony's work is now www.allaboutcircuits.com

Contributions to the missing sections are surely welcome.
