5.0 out of 5 stars Raspberry Pi for the Beginners or Advanced 2 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this book, informative, funny and very good if you are starting out on the Raspberry Pi. Written by one of the Co-Creators of the Raspberry Pi PCB so you know it will contain all the relevant info you need to get started. What I liked about this version is it is the Latest and it worked in my Kindle account on all my Android devices, as must have when working on the Raspberry Pi.

Grab it now, a bargain at the price and a must have read for any enthusiast; at whatever level.,

2.0 out of 5 stars No Guide for Users 24 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Oh dear, yet another Raspberry Pi book written by an expert (in this case THE expert) which tells us more about how much they know, rather than what we all want to know. A User Guide it isn't, if you want to learn how to use the Pi then look elsewhere, a more accurate title would have been "My favourite Raspberry Pi passions". So, having spent twenty pages on the history of the Pi (who cares?) Upton sails through many key issues at a breezy pace (er, what's a mount point for?) before getting on to networking (technically accurate, but lacking explanation), some fairly general stuff about home and office use, and finally his hobbyhorse - programming with Scratch and Python.

You will learn nothing from this book, it is both too general (with lots of very large photos) and annoyingly specific, plenty of Raspian (Linux) code lines, but without adequate background for the average computer user. Paragraphs start with "The host variable should be set to the fully qualified domain name of the IRQ server . . ." I turned back to see if I'd missed a page, I hadn't. There are also some glaring omissions, printing is mentioned only in passing, even though it has been around for several hundred years and is quite popular. Clearly people of Uptons intellect can commit those endless pages of Linux instructions and their tedious variables to memory, shame about the rest of us.....

It is worth mentioning that also from the same publisher is the excellent "Raspberry Pi for Dummies". OK, so I may be a Dummy, but I can now program the Pi a little bit thanks to that book, whereas the User Guide left me confused and dismayed.

Stick to designing the hardware Mr Upton, writing is also a skill and it may not be your greatest strength.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 17 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Does what it says on the tin. Very useful and clear descriptions, but the one area that lets it down, is where the book refers to demonstration code that can be downloaded from the publisher's website. It doesn't work! There is a flaw in the formatting and the code has to be corrected manually, line by line. This is frustrating when, as you are trying to learn the code, you don't know what is causing the problem! A lot of trial and error is involved...
