I have enjoyed reading this book. It is well structured, makes all the important points and has been of great use. It teaches Arduino and also the basics of all micro-controller programming. Very useful!

I bought the Kindle version and have studied chapters 1 through 9, mostly to learn about C pointers. I programmed a Teensy 3.1 ARM board with the examples without difficulty. The book is well-written but as other reviewers have noted, is obscure in a few places. It is also irritating that copying code segments from the Kindle text, which is allowed, includes added text which has to be edited out. Here are issues noted in chapters 6-9: p104: obsolete use of "atoi" function, p131: the construction "((void *) 0)" is not explained, p133: throught typo, p141: three errors in listing 8.2: "int" (?), use of "temp" rather than "temps", twice, also on same page retVal uses "todaysReadings" not "temps", p145: "exit(0);( )" ?, p151 : in "...(char *, const char *);" it is not explained what the *'s do, p167: again, no explanation of "...*)..." construction. Otherwise the book was a good buy and I now feel confident that I can use pointers.

I have reached chapter 5 and was really hoping that this was going to be a good book. Unfortunately there are too many mistakes or misprints in his code. I am only a beginner which makes it more difficult to pick out the mistakes which would be quite obvious to those who are more advanced. I will have to keep looking for a good book on this subject because this one certainly doesn't fit that description.

A great intro book for the Arduino. More of a read from cover to cover then move on type of book, but well worth buying if your new to Arduino. This followed by the Arduino Cook Book are a great combo.

For me, this was a good book that provided me with a good insight to C programming. I had some experience of programming in assembler and this helped me to connect with that experience. If you are just playing with Arduino this book may be too academic but don't dismiss it as it is a useful reference; it is easy to read and definitely points you towards good programming habits.

So far so good. I'm learning a lot from it (and remembering stuff about object oriented programming from years back too!).
Definitely a good book for getting to grips with programming the Arduino series of uCs.
