For me this book was amazing. I am a electronics hobbyist with a very good understanding of circuits and sensors but I am a complete noob when it comes to any networking protocols. This book gave me the bare minimum to start working on projects and was very very vague on specifics. This lead to me having to spend days on simple projects ( like using putty and command line operations) BUT at the same time I learned a tonne doing so. More so then if I simply cut and pasted code and everything worked right in the first place. So this book was the best because learned so much trying to get the projects to work but the worst because it hardly gives any details on how to achieve the end results. In addition I am a PC and Pic microcontroller user and this book is written mostly for other platforms.
