I have a paper copy of the 1st edition of the CMOS Cookbook that I used so often that the pages started to come loose from the binding. It is an essential resource for anyone who wants to work with CMOS chips.

The author, Don Lancaster, has made the 4th edition of CMOS Cookbook available for free download from his site. Get it immediately. Thanks Don!
