How to Diagnose and Fix Everything Electronic, Second Edition 2nd Edition, Kindle Edition
About the Author
Michael Jay Geier has been an electronics technician, designer and inventor since age 6. He took apart everything he could get his hands on, and soon discovered that learning to put it back together was even more fun. By age 8, he operated a neighborhood electronics repair service that was profiled in The Miami News. He went on to work in numerous service centers in Miami, Boston and Seattle, frequently serving as the "tough dog" tech who solved the cases other techs couldn't. At the same time, Michael was a pioneer in the field of augmentative communications systems, helping a noted Boston clinic develop computer speech systems for children with cerebral palsy. He also invented and sold an amateur radio device while writing and marketing software in the early years of personal computing.
Michael holds an FCC Extra-class amateur radio license. His involvement in ham radio led to his writing career, first with articles for ham radio magazines, and then with general technology features in Electronic Engineering Times, Desktop Engineering, IEEE Spectrum, and The Envisioneering Newsletter. His work on digital rights management has been cited in several patents. Michael earned a Boston Conservatory of Music degree in composition, was trained as a conductor, and is an accomplished classical, jazz and pop pianist, and a published songwriter. Along with building and repairing electronic circuitry, he enjoys table tennis, restoring antique mopeds, ice skating, bicycling, and banging out a jazz tune on his harpsichord.

The book is written by an experienced old hand that know his solder and it really brings a lot of good advice, combined with nice close-up photos. I like that the author explains some cases that was complex to solve - and I would want more of such histories, as they sometimes are better to get the point through. I would have wanted some more tips on repairing or modifying modern electronic music equipment, as this is where I am now (modding older synths).
But all in all, the book is recommendable.
There's a wealth of information from the author's experience which is interesting, but I wonder if it would have been better to take say 10 different common appliances and just cover each in detail from teardown, troubleshooting, fix and assembly.
Interesting read but not much of a reference for future use.
unfortunatley not a very long topic on transformers, i already know how they work, i want to know how to diagnose a dodgy one! anyway i guess its off to youtube again...(said the idiot)
