I was recently bitten by the fixing-up-old-radios bug and while I'm pretty handy and good at fixing things I have NO ELECTRONIC KNOWLEDGE at all... well, a few basics, but for practical purposes I'm almost starting at zero. I wanted a solid informational book that I could find answers in. I found it in READY SET GO! Clearly written and beginner-friendly. Recommended!
