Could anyone suggest any books on module design and construction for someone without any real electrical knowledge? I picked up Delton Horn's Manual of Design & Construction but so far it seems to assume the reader has more electrical knowledge than I do. Any books on the basics of working with electrical circuits would be appreciated as well.

Thanks!

For learning electronics I always point people to "The Art of Electronics" by Horowitz and Hill. It's the best.

I'm with RF on The Art of Electronics - wonderful book. If you can get your hands on "Musical Applications of Microprocessors" by Hal Chamberlin, 2nd edition, grab one - it's a gem. Despite its title and its age, it covers the general aspects of basic synthesizer electronics.

Thanks for the suggestions. I actually already have that book on its way so good to find others endorsing it.
