    Great Power Supply Book! For simulations too!

    I like this book because of how practical and informative the design and simulation process is. Not only is the design infomration reflective of how knowledgable Mr. Sandler is, but - even though I've been simulation for some time now - I like that he shows how to use the SPICE tools. Great Power Supply Book - much like the one that I would like to write.
