I saw no chapters on other programming languages like picc or picbasic. This is unfortunate seeing as the author seems to explain things very well. I would have enjoyed reading about these subjects from this author.

The first six chapters are on/in the Microchip website/data book. Chapters seven through nine are decated to software and hardward design. The rest are on the emulator, hints and code examples.
I bought the book for examples on input/output interfacing and coding. I found one or no input examples and several output examples. Hardware examples were better than coding examples.
This project was my first with uController's but I have been programming and designing hardware for several years. After getting helpful straight foreward examples on input/output hardware and software design, the book became more of an asset. This book is not for beginners.

This is definately not a book for beginners. There is a lack of order and some things are repeated a couple times. Some basic concepts aren't explained and without them just about everything else dosen't make much sense. If you still decide to buy it I would recommend downloading the datasheets from Microchip and read those before you start the book; and also finding a short description of the commands. One good thing is that he will answer your emails and answer your questions

This is the most poorly written book I've read in years. Spending a few minutes at the Microchip web site will provide better information (and the editing will be a few hundred times better.)

This book will setup the beginner with a HOW-TO for developing the hardware necessary to program the PIC. It delves very little into the HOW-TO of the actual software. If you are looking for the instruction set or the methodologies of programming, start with Microchip's Data books. However, if you want a jump start to developing your own hardware to program the PIC, this is an excellent resource. Note that with as many websites as there are today, you may be able to find most of the information online, however, this book will give you a nice place to start your hardware designs.

This wonderful book allows students of all levels of electronics to gain a good understanding of the PIC architecture and programming . The scope is well - defined throughout , with numerous experiments and a wealth of PIC resources outside of the text . I am using the book myself and found all the examples clearly explained - as of now I am building a PIC programmer from the layout included in the book . I recommend this text to anyone who wishes to get a hands on course in this topic !

The author may know the subject, however by reading the book one does not get that feeling. The book has numerous errors. The author has no idea as to how a book should be written clearly so that people can understand the subject. Microchip data sheets are written better than the whole book. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANY BODY. FIND A DIFFERENT BOOK IF YOU WANT TO LEARN THIS SUBJECT OF PIC MICROCONTROLLERS.

After reading the mixed reviews, I bought this book anyway. Even the more negative reviews had not prepared me for the vague writing style and, much worse, the very real lack of structure. There is progression of ideas is weak and haphazard with insufficient explanation of basic concepts. It is possible to learn from this book, but only by reading the datasheets first, and then perhaps by reading the book cover to cover twice -- I had expected the book to serve as a self-contained introduction, allowing me to use the datasheet only as a reference, but I could not use it as such. Instead of this book, I recommend Peatman's book over this one (also sold by Amazon). It has everything this book lacks, and covers more ground, including features of the more advanced PIC controllers.
