Not sure how long this will last, but this newly released (Dec 17) book by Charles Platt has dropped 65% in the past few days. I had it in my cart as I was going to buy it for my nephew as this looks perfect for a 10 year old and it was 9.99 until I checked today and got the price dropped notice in my Amazon Cart.

It is still $7.19 for the Kindle version, so for some reason they are blowing out the paperback. Also CamelCamelCamel has no pricing update (weird) for it and still shows it at $9.99 so I am not sure if it may be a error, but it just looks like a big price drop right now.

Everywhere else I see is still selling at $9.99 (or more) including Barnes & Noble

https://www.amazon.com/Easy-Elect...168045448X

Only has 3 reviews so far at 3.3 stars, but it looks like they may not of known it is a short 56 page book meant as a intro.

Looked like it is a pretty slickdeal share if anyone else has a young one that may be interested in electronics.

Im in for 1..

Heads up I just noticed their is a electronics kit for this book in the "Customers who bought this item also bought" section on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077CGJH95 [amazon.com] but it is on sale for a few bucks less on the sellers page: https://www.protechtrader.com/Eas...onent-Pack

At $39.99 its might be a normal sale price but worth it to go with the book. I did not see it for sale anywhere else to compare

As a responsible corporate citizen, Amazon shouldn't sell books like this. It could be used as terrorist training material for making IEDs. What's next: Genetic Engineering in Your Basement Lab or Easy Backyard Ordnance? This is clearly knowledge that should only be known by the government and trusted companies like Apple or Lockheed Martin. Think of the children.

this is why north korea banned these kind of books. cnn reporters said that north korea is a very friendly country.

I'm glad you got it. We all have different tastes when it comes to jokes. Perhaps you'll like this one better.

I think he paused to decide what he wanted in addition to beer.

What the heck is in this book if it should be banned? Can't imagine much if it's "easy electronic" circuits.
