Very thorough, covers everything from Web, PHP, C/C++ through to connections with embedded kit, such as Arduino.
Since this 2nd edition (2011), things have advanced at an even higher rate than since the 1st edition - the online community is now incredible.
However, there is also a lot of information, some confusing and conflicting, so this book is a good place to start and acts as a good reference tool also.
Just be aware that some of the suppliers and kit may no longer be available (though improved alternatives will probably be available instead!).
An easy read, clear design. Might be useful in part for basics within GCSE Computing (PHP, HTML, Apache, C/C++).
Let's hope there's a 3rd edition in the future...
