Books on practical electronics?
I've come to realize there's a giant gap in my electrical engineering knowledge. I've studied plenty of math, physics, circuit analysis, and digital electronics but yet can't figure out how to troubleshoot consumer electronic devices or construct simple gadgets. When I open up a DVD player and look at all the electronic components I think, "wtf?! where can I utilize my knowledge of boolean algebra and the superposition theorem to fix this piece of sh_t?" I've browsed through amazon's list of electronics books and the reviews don't really help. I'm leaning towards Tab Electronics Guide to Understanding Electricity and Electronics. Does anybody have any recommendations?

The Art of Electronics, Horowitz and Hill
Analog Electronics for Scientific Application, Baarnal
do a good job of bridging the gap but are not troubleshooting texts
For that, its a combination.
The best web resourse is Sam Goldwasser http://repairfaq.ece.drexel.edu/sam/trnintro.htm
A good book is:
Troubleshooting Analog Circuits, Bob Pease
As well as books by Joe Carr.
Consumer gear is a nice break from the lab for me. I find it a relaxing pastime. At least with consumer gear, you know it worked at one time, unlike the prototype that makes you think its firmware one hour, and hardware the next, all the while its a little solder ball under the 144 pin IC.
