I remembered the books that have the clause "for dummies". I'm not looking for a book about electronics for dummies, like me. I'm thinking more about learning how to tinker with our electronic gadgets by experience. Do you think this is a good idea?

I did a bit of Physics in college and the hardest unit for me, was Electronics. I kind of found it hard to grasp the theory, even though the practical bit was fun so I agree with you that learning through experience could be the best way.

Home supply stores have electronic basics books in the electronic section. They are not how-to manuals per se, but more along the line of telling you how electrical currents and such work. There's more to the book than just that, but I have one in my shop and it's great for reminding me of the basics.

These types of skills are hard to learn through reading only. You probably need to get some hands-on experience. I used to tinker with things that were already broken. If I fixed them, then that was great. If I didn't, well, they couldn't get any more broken than they already were.

Don't you mean gaining experience by tinkering?

Even so, this isn't like woodworking where you can learn from experience. You should read up on this before you start experimenting.

For sure it'll be an experience experimenting with old gadgets. Lots of sources to learn from nowadays with the internet. Aside from books, there are also video tutorials available so it's all fun learning as long as you're careful.
