The Microcontroller Idea Book: Circuits, Programs &hellip by Jan Axelson
Although the 8052 processor is very outdated, it still can be used to control many things in this ever-so-hi-tech-world. The 8052 proves to be a very affordable microcontroller, rather than buying a full blown computer or PC104-based computer. This book is very introductory, but it does assume you know basic electronics. The 8052 is no where near as complex as an FPGA, but the programming rituals can prepare you before you learn the basics of programming the FPGA(theory and your thinking of logic). The experience gained by playing around with the 8052 sure gave me the important thinking processes needed for other design projects at work.

This book is like a bible for Electrical Engineers. There are many concepts that are reviewed in this text and would be recommended for Engineers out there as well as students. Not everyone can remember all the theories there are, and you have to agree with me, that surfing the internet looking for an answer can be a real pain. I still prefer flipping pages then searching the web for the "right answer."
I met several Electrical Engineers who owns this book, and keeps it at work. I flipped through it and found out why. The book explains concepts really well.

I'm an Electrical Engineer working for a private R&D company. This handy book has all the major things you need to know. It shows electrical concepts, formulas, tables, etc. This book would go really well for Electronics Technicians and Electronic Engineers as well. I've been out of school only for 3 years, but I sure did forget a lot of the theory that was thought in school. Instead of rummaging through my school books, I can open up this pocket reference and find out how to calculate "this" and how to do "that."
Highly recommended!
