Brilliant book.

I have wanted a Pi for a while now, but wasn't sure what I would actually do with it or where to start. This books helps you to get to grips with the basics and take it further. The projects are great to follow, and there's plenty of room for taking the standard code they give you and making it your own by re-writing some in a different way etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Need more lists! (And not the python kind)
This book is really good for getting off the ground quickly. However, my biggest gripe about this book is in the hardware tutorials. The first chapter talked about using your PiFace module, which I had not read about so far in the book. Only to find an explanation of what it was in the last chapter of the book, not a good start.

This review is from: Raspberry Pi Projects (Paperback)
This book is really good for getting off the ground quickly. However, my biggest gripe about this book is in the hardware tutorials. The first chapter talked about using your PiFace module, which I had not read about so far in the book. Only to find an explanation of what it was in the last chapter of the book, not a good start.

Yet the main reason this gets three stars instead of four for this arrangement, is that the hardware tutorials do not give you a list of materials you need to get at the start of the chapters. Meaning I have to read through the whole chapter, write down what I need to order; and hope that I got all the right parts.

Overall good book.

This was the book that was needed to go with all the Pi bits and pieces. It gives a thorough overview of all the likely things you can do when building your Pi, ideal purchase.
