I've read the English translation, and it is very good.
But, the book is pretty scarce and very expensive.
I don't think I will ever own a copy.

As for AoE - it has the advantage of being written by people who know their 
and written for a very specific & well-defined audience.
I think it is a great success - in the same way that a synth that is 
designed by
someone who knows their stuff, with a well-defined aim in mind, would be.

All I can say is, the books that always seemed to end up on my bench (as 
to the bookshelves) were AoE, Pease on troubleshooting, and  the books by 
Jung and
by Lancaster. Plus the Linear & National applications notes.
