This book provides a wonderful start for working with the Arduino micro controller. The projects progress wonderfully from one to the next building progressively on the Knowledge you acquire as you go. and with the colour insert to help the instructions are clear and concise.
Be prepared to spend some money on the components for many of these projects, as the Arduino can't do anything with out SOME hardware. Though it is not necessary to buy the parts for all the projects as you certainly can skip some projects that aren't in your primary area of interest.
A basic understanding of electronics helps when using this book, but I am a relative beginner working with electronics as well as arduino and I can get along fine.
Michael McRoberts should be commended for writing a book that is well worth the purchase price.
