All,
I think Brian Young's book does what he stated on the list. It's meant to
be an extension or follow on to HJ's classic. It is more focused on package
modeling than board modeling. If there is anything that I would like to see
added to either text it would be an in-depth section on cable and chassis
modeling. Both books are excellent buys.

Hi All,

I have both, and in my opinion...

The "Black Magic" is fundamental and covers the "Rules of Thumb" a
modern engineer should know. It may be a starting point of the digital
design field.

The other is aiming to more detailed design for "GHz". It talks about
more steps to "non-ideal" world, such as frequency-dependency or lossy
media. Also it contains "How-to" do simulations and do measurements in
the modern design. This book is a bit "over-spec" for me now, but helps
to understanding the advanced designing.

If you are not satisfied with the "Black Magic", Stephen Hall's will be
worth.

Hope this will help you...
