"It is a highly detailed book on the actual design and construction of tube amplifiers…the book covers planning, metalworking, wiring and testing. A real nitty gritty book for hobbyists and serious manufacturers. For example, the book details things like how to orient audio and power transformers to avoid problems of magnetic flux leakage from affecting other transformers or the tubes themselves. The test section is excellent."--ElectronicDesign.com, March 17, 2014--This text refers to the paperback edition.
The practical guide to building, modifying, fault finding and repairing vacuum tube amplifiers from renowned vacuum tube guru Morgan Jones--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Tube circuitry is tangential to the information in the book, but it is not the main course here. There are many other books available that discuss tube amplifier circuits. There are few if any others that provide proper coverage of mechanical construction.
In my opinion you will not learn how to design an amplifier but you will learn how to build them, which is the purpose of the book, however if you want to learn all the ins and outs of valve design, there are other books more suitable for the purpose like the other book by Mr. Jones Valve Amplifiers, Fourth Edition will seem more apropriate, or my personal favorite Radio Designer's Handbook, Fourth Edition .

Lots of useful practical advice, including consideration of the effects of heat and stray magnetic fields illustrating the importance of laying out components to achieve good performance. The ideal companion to Valve Amplifiers
