There are a lot of Raspberry Pi books out there but if you are just getting started then this is the one you should buy. And even if you aren't a beginner there's lots to be learned from these pages.

There's a clear progression, the projects are interesting and fun and the book is well structured and clearly laid out. A brilliant companion to the Pi.

Twenty minutes later I had to resort to silicone grease and brute force. I've been building PCs for over 20 years and this is the first time I've seen this. Corsair may need to check their QA as the board was… Read more
