Being of the same age (sort of) I enjoyed the book very much. In a similar way I had very little formal training but as John pointed out what they were teaching at Uni and Tech was way behind the cutting edge stuff we were handling and of little use.
We just made Pcb's, learned to program, cut metal,worked out how stuff was supposed to be done, won jobs by bravado, made it, spray painted to make it look pretty, installed it and got on with it.
I recommend a read for every one.

It's working for me. I've backed the file up, just in case their website is having difficulties.

Interesting read, pity about the mistakes here and there though.
