I know nothing about raspberry pi. After having read this book, I feel confident to go ahead and buy the hardware comfortable that there is enough information here to support me through the initial experimental phases.

It has what you need but could be more helpful as the way it keep jumping about can get you lost. The information you need is certainly there if you can find it.

I got this just to get a flavour of what was possible with a Raspberry Pi and although it's limited in its scope it is a good starting point.

Brilliant little book. Cuts through the techno speak that you bump into soon after getting the Raspberry pi.
