If you're interested in environmental monitoring, I would have thought you would start by measuring temperature, humidity, air pressure, rainfall, wind speed and direction. But apparently no, none of those are covered.
However if you want to know the concentration of gases in the air or the colour of the sky(?), you'll be an expert by the end of this book. It takes about 20 minutes to read and is very American in references to where to buy components.
At £1.50 is not expensive but then again, I didn't find it at all useful either.

There isn't anything technically wrong with the book. However it could have been written in half the space. Chapters seem to drag out the blindingly obvious. I had hoped for many more atmospheric experiments.

Trawl for sensors on your local e bay add on web support and you can do all that's in the book. So its a handy reference of the usual Make stable.

I have received these books but they are so thin that the price paid is an absolute robbery

For those new to the capabilities of the Arduino this is a great inexpensive intro. Lot's of good code examples.
