Dr. Bell clearly and succinctly documents such topics as wired and wireless sensors, physical computing including the Arduino and Raspberry Pi, Internet of Things services such as Xively (formerly COSM and Pachube), and of course local and cloud storage of sensor data in MySql. The book includes well documented code snippets necessary to implementation of sensor networks and IoT. He also documents and comments on other resources both in the form of publications and online sources which will contribute to implementing such sensor networks.
I found this book extremely useful in my own area of implementing Biosensor networks and preparing the signal chain from these sensors to databases (locally and in the cloud) where analytics can be applied. I highly recommend it to users and implementors of physical computing solutions, and Internet of Things applications.

The big surprise was the second half of the book which introduces the mySQL database server and the different ways a sensor network can be configured with mySQL as the data repository. One such configuration is a bunch of sensors connected to Arduino's, which are, in turn, connected to mySQL running on a Raspberry Pi.
This is way cooler than writing text records to an SD card. I've got enough new project ideas to keep me busy for years!
