But what about other industries? A startup from Europe, MusicRage, is attempting to apply a similar business model but in the world of music, being (at the time of submitting this story) at the end of their third round of bundles."

Try the famous P. Horowitz & W. Hill "The Art of Electronics". Great amount of theory with emphasis on UNDERSTANDING how circuits work and DESIGNING them, without counting every single possible value on your calculator. First book covers the basics and analog electronics, the second one covers logical circuits and digital electronics in general.

Oh, and even if You want to program microcontrollers, you'd still need at least some theory to really understand what you're doing.
