A collection of articles on the early-90s analogue electronics design process, with contributions from many of the big names in the field. This is pretty random; some reprints of classic articles, some philosophical ramblings, some war stories, some tips and tricks.

Those by Bob Pease (on the Philbrick P2) and Jim Williams (on voltage-to-frequency conversion) are as enjoyable as you'd expect from their writing elsewhere; I also particularly liked Robert Matthys' overview of crystal oscillators, and Dan Sheingold's guide to uses for op-amps. Highly recommended if you're into electronics -- although sadly it's an Elsevier publication, so you'll have to pay through the nose for it...
