Kit and book offers electronics for beginners


When my son was much younger, he expressed an interest in learning about electronics and I thought I had a great solution. I ordered one of the DIY kits advertised in the back of a magazine that promised a project that would be fun and easy.

It turned out to be neither and we both quickly lost our enthusiasm.

I suspect that things would have been much different if Charles Platt would have been around. Platt writes books for electronics hobbyists that are aimed at the complete novice. Platt's latest book is Easy Electronics, a book that includes projects so simple that Platt says you don't even need a screwdriver.

Of course, readers will need a few component items to create the experiments in Platt's book. A company called ProTech Trader has put together a collection of items specifically to match Platt's projects. And, it offers the kit bundled with Platt's book on Amazon.

The book and kit bundle costs $49.99 or you can buy just the component pack for $41.99. For more details, check out the ProTech Trader website.
