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.

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.

Learning by discovery occurs in serious research, when scientists notice an unusual phenomenon that cannot be explained by current theory, and they start to investigate it in an effort to explain it. This may ultimately lead to a better understanding of the world.

We’re going to be doing the same thing, although obviously on a much less ambitious level.

Along the way, you will make some mistakes. This is good. Mistakes are the best of all learning processes. I want you to burn things out and mess things up, because this is how you learn the limits of components and materials. Since we’ll be using low voltages, there’ll be no chance of electrocution, and so long as you limit the flow of current in the ways I’ll describe, there will be no risk of burning your fingers or starting fires.

 Learning by discovery allows you to start building simple circuits right away, using a handful of cheap components, a few batteries, and some alligator clips.

I assume that you’re beginning with no prior knowledge of electronics. So, the first few experiments will be ultra-simple, and you won’t even use solder or prototyping boards to build a circuit. You’ll be holding wires together with alligator clips.

Very quickly, though, you’ll be experimenting with transistors, and by the end of Chapter 2, you will have a working circuit that has useful applications. I don’t believe that hobby electronics has to be difficult to understand. Of course, if you want to study electronics more formally and do your own circuit design, this can be challenging. But in this book, the tools and supplies will be inexpensive, the objectives will be clearly defined, and the only math you’ll need will be addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the ability to move decimal points from one position to another.
