I'll get my gripe out of the way first then I can go on to be positive. I really think Arduino Workshop is under selling itself. It's not just a workshop manual but a tutorial on electronics, programming and Arduino, and a very good one at that. With that out of the way I think you can guess I really rate this book. Being of the somewhat nerdy persuasion I have of course heard of Arduino but given that I tend to play more in the in software arena I only really knew it as a name and general concept rather than as a tool. This book tells you pretty much everything you could want to know about how to pick up and use Arduino. It's written largely as a set of exemplar projects backed up with the appropriate background information about the required components and programs. I very much doubt anyone will go through the book and build all the projects, but then again I don't really think that's what's expected. It's much more likely that most people will thoroughly read the first six chapters which have the basics of the Arduino, circuits and the Arduino programming language (which, for previous programmers out there, looks a lot like C/C++) and then treat the rest of the book as a bit of a pick and mix. There are chapters on touch screens, liquid crystal display, GPS, internet communication and many others so you can select the elements that your project requires, learn how to use them and put them together. And you even have the joy of knowing that when you reach the end of the book you can go onto the author's web site and pick up there where Arduino Workshop left off. Over all this is an excellent resource and one that should be on the shopping list of everyone interested in creating their own Arduino toys and tools.

I agree this is a very useful book and I am using it to get up to date as not done any programming for many years, but as experienced in electronics it is slightly annoying that uP pin numbers aren't appended to the drawings, ie giving the reader a 'proper schematic' to work with so I decided to draw the full schematics myself, and build the circuits from those. But when comparing my schematics to the 'book code' discovered several programming errors in the code listings.
I checked these errors against the code downloaded from the No Starch Website and the downloaded code seems to be error free, (so far).
But it would be very frustrating to a 'newbie' to enter the code from the book due to these errors. I assume from no such comments so far that most people use the downloaded code, which would be my suggestion for complete beginners.

Overall though a very good book which is useful to complete beginners and people with some experience, and if you really want to learn it is good practice to find the coding errors and fix them.

At the moment I have two books on the arduino, this one the arduino workshop and getting started with the arduino.

All was well with getting started with the arduino, until I installed some unrelated software on the laptop (dropbox). At that point the drivers stopped working, and i did everything in my power to sort things out, but nothing worked.

So in desperation I turned to the Arduino workshop, where the explanation on installing Windows drivers was better, and they are now installed correctly and the software is working correctly.

All the Arduino books seem to assume the reader has no prior knowledge of electronics, which as an electrician and an electronics enthusiast, makes me glaze over those parts of the books. But where my knowledge is lacking, is in programming, and I think this book is going to keep my interest as it has much better programming examples to copy out, and many more interesting projects than other books. So other reviewers have said they wouldn't do all the projects, I probably will do more rather than less, so that I can get to grips with the programming in a way that I never have before.

I started off by buying the kindle version and used that for a few months. It was good, but I suspected that there was something lost in the transalation from book to kindle. So I bought the book. There is something about the layout of the book, and the presentation that has encouraged me to reread it, and I am getting much more out of it second time round.

So if I could give this book more than 5 stars I would, but I can't so it'll have to stay at 5 stars.

This is a superb book for someone like myself who wanted to start tinkering with an Arduino and do some physical computing. The projects are well explained with a wiring diagram and the sample program. I was soon listing components to buy and dying for them to arrive so that I could move on to the next project. Works well as a Kindle book that I can have open on my Mac whilst I program using the Arduino IDE.

This book is great.
It arrived today and Im through chapter 7 without a pause, its that good.
I know my way around programming and electronics and have played with Arduino, Netduino and Raspberry Pi a little. This however has been the 1st book to actually get me doing something useful and motivating me to learn.
I'm not sure what it is, whether its the style, the information or it just brings everything together. Either way it works.
Looking forward I can see it will cover some of the more difficult, challenging but in the end most fun parts of the Arduino and its application.
I can see myself developing all sorts of gadgets around the house and for fun with this book. The 1st of many to do so in the many years I have been looking. I'll also be getting my 12 year old to do the same I think.

I usually buy on Kindle, but in this case, along with other technical tomes I think the paperback is actually better.
Buy it if you have even a passing interest and I guarantee you'll be hooked, just like I am.
