I submitted my novel to Reader's Favorite for review a week ago and today they came back to me with the following 5-star review: The need for a rapid response to global threats leads to the development of the STRATOS team, an elite unit of combat-ready operatives prepared to take on and eliminate hostile targets at short notice. Keen to maintain the upper hand in a changing world, the country's top brass took it upon themselves to include an artificial intelligence project to assist in STRATOS operations. David Friedman is the mind behind EVE, the artificial intelligence program. With the p ..read more

(Click on picture above to go to the blog) I've been away from this blog for quite a while, but I'm not completely disengaged from it, nor do I have the intention of abandoning it. Truth is, I've been busy with something else——writing a book of a totally different genre. As the post title suggests, I am currently writing a hard sci-fi romance novel. And now that I'm near finishing, I thought it is time to announce it to my readers who're following this blog.  This is my first attempt at sci-fi narrative. Readers may wonder why I chose this seemingly unrelated path in my writing ende ..read more

Book Review (Deciphering Schematics)

These days, book reviews are hard to come by. So when there's one from a reader, it's always a joy to share. Here's a recent one for Deciphering Schematics: Good ratings and reviews encourage and motivate authors to continue writing, and even excel in the work of sharing their invaluable knowledge. It just take you only five minutes of your time, but it means a great deal for the one putting months of hard work in solitude. So be generous, readers, especially during this season of thanksgiving. Show your gratitude and appreciation to those who have enriched your life through their writings ..read more

Scarier Than Halloween?

For the most part of my engineering career, I performed repairs (surgeries) on countless PCBs. It didn't dawn on me that one day, I would have to undergo one myself. Warning: graphic image in this post, so be warned! Recently I had a regular dental visit to clean my teeth. My dentist friend noticed the gum above my front top left incisor was darkened and inflamed. She did a check and found recesses of 5mm and 9mm around the affected tooth. X-ray revealed the foundation of that incisor had eroded, and she advised me to see a gum specialist. She cautioned if I leave it untreated, the incisor w ..read more

Two days ago, I received an email from a guy by the name Jason Richard out of the blue.  Here are his words: A few months ago, I sent Joe a picture of the hardware hacker library I was building at work and asked him to do the same. After a few messages he felt that I needed your new books for the collection, so he sent them to me. Things were unfamiliar, but not daunting... Until I got to page 149. That might have been scariest thing I've seen as I imagined someone asking me to RE it. After a few minutes of terror and intense imposter syndrome, I settled down and thought about it. Afterw ..read more

PCB-RE: A Niche Skillset

A novice starting out to learn PCB reverse engineering usually begins with a multimeter with the simple notion that it's all about finding the interconnection points between components on the circuit board. Well, that's not entirely correct. If it were that simple, electronic engineers the world over would be doing it. Like the game of Go, the basic rules of PCB reverse engineering is easy to pick up, but mastering the skill requires time and certain know-how, if you want to shorten the learning curve and avoid costly mistakes and pitfalls. That's the reason I set out to write the sequel book ..read more

Diagnosing PCB Failures

One of the questions I often get asked during my tenure as a test and repair engineer in my former company was: what's the most difficult thing about PCB repair. My reply: intermittent faults and erratic failures. I'm sure those in the PCB repair industry would readily agree with me on this. And it's not getting any easier for those engaging in this craft, given the increasing complexity of today's PCBs in terms of their designs and functionalities. That's one reason why I embarked on writing PCB Diagnostics, a book that attempts to address not only this thorny challenge faced by the PCB repai ..read more

Bestseller Title in the Netherlands

Soon after Antrisksh and Aseem's recent visit to Singapore and our meetup, I noticed an increase in sales of my books in the Netherlands. In fact, one of the titles got into the bestseller category: This is not surprising, since The Essentials is priced lower than the other engineering books. But I believe there is more to it. While The Art of PCB-RE is still the best overall consistent seller, what it lacks in real-world application (after all, it is an introduction to PCB-RE for those learning this niche skill, albeit a good book to start with detailed step-by-step guidance), The Esse ..read more
