> I love this trend of using comics to describe technical ideas (which, as far as I can tell, started in earnest with Julia Evans).

Julia deserves a ton of credit, but I think it's also important to remember whytheluckystiff's "Poignant Guide to Ruby" [1]. Going even farther back, Forrest M Mims' electronics books [2], which I remember being sold in Radio Shacks, get much of their fame and familiarity from being hand-written.

You should probably start by saying what you already know so we can tailor the responses. For example

Basic: https://www.amazon.com/Getting-Started-Electronics-Forrest-M...

Intermediate (with a heavy RF slant): http://www.arrl.org/arrl-handbook-2015

Advanced: https://www.amazon.com/High-Speed-Digital-Design-Handbook/dp...

And then there are the various subcategories: low level precision analog, high power motors and switchgear, basic digital and microcontrollers, high speed processors, etc... you're asking a wide open question.

Even Manufacturing is not a simple question to answer unless given some direction. You want to make a first PC board in your bathroom, or build complex electromechanical assemblies?
