Excellent book for new Arduino hobbyists. Digital edition is easier to read on 27” iMac rather than the printed book.
As a friend declared, this book is not for children. A beginner in hacking with Arduino is someone like me, who has general knowledge - even skills about circuitry but does not make circuits or hardware products for a living, a fair amount of programming experience but does not program or make software for a living. In other words, someone who needs to transform general knowledge into broadened view and specific skills.
The selection of projects is well thought out, mostly involving inexpensive (mass produced) components that can be used for other purposes. The selection also covers a wide range of design elements. Each project is related to a real-life application, but the book makes no attempt at complete DIY projects. Instead, the author first explains practical procedures - both hardware assembly and "sketch". They are followed by some in-depth pointers about intricacies used in the design, either circuitry or programming. So if you do not have time, you can make the project quickly. Meanwhile, you can gain more insight when reading the finer points.
In other words, this is a good "bridging" book for a beginner.
Lots of code and examples.
