I really tried to like and work with this book but gave up due to the fact that the math gets in the way of learning (I am capable of the calculus and diffeqs but in spite of that, it did not simplify understanding). The author could have used a traditional approach with the usual KCL/KVL and other analysis tools, and skip the very abstract stuff he has in here. This will not help the reader achieve any level of proficiency at solving circuits. Circuit Analysis. A couple of recommendations: Circuit Analysis by Bobrow, Fundamentals of Circuit Analysis by Sadiku is outstanding; YouTube lectures are excellent such as Michel van Biezen or EEblog. Avoid this book if you want to avoid confusion..

This is a good resource to compliment your textbook and coursework, however, it will leave you scratching your head, not because it is hard to grasp, but because it needs editing to fix math errors... Example is pg 109 chapter 6, he integrates correctly but forgets to add the initial value in simplification. I find myself often analyzing his work to be sure whose error it is. Time lost in that regard, but overall helpful book.

This book is not for the novice and isn't simple either. Not nearly as good as the "For Dummies" books. I would not recommend this book for those desiring the "basics".
Melipra
As always these kind of books help you a lot when trying to get updated. This book covers everything you need to know when start studying electric circuits or refresh when you want to remember specific points on circuit analysis.
Nettale
Easy understanding. The way he teaches makes it less stressful and fun to read. I'd highly recommend this book. He also has several others that are just as good. I enjoy his technique!
Abandoned Electrical
Very well written but would be difficult for anyone not familiar calculas.

Summary: the book gives a good set of "mental tricks" that could help you visualize circuit behavior. It also abounds in simple, practical examples that help the user go slowly from one step to another. I liked the focus on understanding circuits behavior intuitively and deriving quick/useful "rules of thumb". Beware: there are many typos/errors.

From a cohesiveness POV, I fel that the book, IMHO, should be studied only after (or in parallel) with another, more serious course for circuit analysis. There are things introduced out-of-order, or mathematical calculations which could appear hard to grasp at first sight if you don't know what are they about.

Last, the biggest issue: there are numerous errors, typos that you should watch for constantly, that you can start to see right from the first example. So, if something doesn't make sense, it might not be your fault necessarily. Look for erorrs and typos.

That said, I still enjoyed the book despite its many errors. It's like participating in a course about electrical engineering with a fun professor, but a bit absent-minded. Plus, certain tricks I learned in the book are invaluable. For example the Karni method is cool stuff that I haven't seen exposed anywhere else.

I would really like a next edition that eliminates all errors/typos so it could join the list of "serious books" about circuit analysis.
If you are mystified don't expect this book to help much, you may end up more confused. Gratuitous and excessive math dominates, at the expense of intuitive explanations. It is inconsistent and unclear, appears hastily composed without a lot of review. Written more from a physic professor's point of view rather than an electrical engineer's - examples mostly have little relation to real circuits and often have contrived values that don't make much sense. Many examples are too abstract to actually set up and measure in a lab.

Note, the examples below are from the 2008 version, perhaps may change in later editions.

Example 1: In Fig 1-7 "an example of how to add up voltages in a circuit" the random values do not add to zero, in direct contradiction to Kirkchoff's voltage loop law. This example is entirely invalid, so is Fig 1-14.

Example 2: The first sentence about Thevenin's Theorem says "..replaced with a single resistor and a single current source". Huh? That's Norton, Thevenin is a voltage source. Obviously a typo, but a blatant one.

Example 3: Basic Series and Parallel networks are not covered until AFTER voltage dividers, current dividers and Kirchoff's laws. Really they should be covered first.

Example 4: Gratuitous use of math - page 7 "...example will be... painful..." followed by two pages of integration by parts. This is excessive, there are other books for math review.

Example 5: Fig 2-11 Ground reference signal completely out of context with a brief paragraph and no examples.

I could go on, but my bottom line is that while there is a lot of information here, the presentation could be significantly improved. It's a fair review book if you already know this stuff, and could be a useful alternate viewpoint book for the beginning student, but not recommended as a sole learning vehicle.
