    Rambling, disorganized, and outdated

    There may be an audience for which this unfortunate jumble of a book is appropriate, but it's not clear whom it would be. Not beginning EE students, certainly; the book starts out assuming the reader is already well familiar with the characteristics and use of power MOSFETs, IGBTs, SCRs, Darlingtons, and assorted other elements in the power semiconductor lexicon. There's no systematic introduction or laying out of the theoretical basics. Nor will the book be of much use as a reference for practicing engineers. Much of the material is outdated, and there's little coverage of advanced topics. Nothing, for example, about soft switching methods and ways to optimize performance. The book's consistent avoidance of equations and quantitative calculations perhaps make it attractive to mathematically challenged tinkerers. That's OK; they have a right to be as informed about the subject as their handicap allows. The circuits presented in the book may allow tinkers to build some useful bench devices. But it will take a lot more than what is to be found here to prepare anyone to actually *design* anything of commercial utility.
