5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book I've Seen on the Raspberry Pi

This review is from: Raspberry Pi Manual: A practical guide to the revolutionary small computer (Owners Workshop Manual) (Haynes Owners Workshop Manuals) (Hardcover)
Bought with Rasp Pi and other peripherals. Used intermittently so far but can see will come in useful when Rasp Pi programming reaches higher levels. Language quite technical.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but it makes some assumptions, 4 Jan 2014
This review is from: Raspberry Pi Manual: A practical guide to the revolutionary small computer (Owners Workshop Manual) (Haynes Owners Workshop Manuals) (Hardcover)
Generally a good book but is aimed at someone with some experience of programming. I would have liked some more hardware oriented projects or examples with step by step instructions.

Never thought I would see a Haynes for a computer but here it is and worth the money, a concise book on all things Raspberry PI but if you are not used to how Haynes manuals work it might be a bit overwhelming especially young people
