“According to friends of mine who work in the disciplines above, this is an excellent introduction to read through the principles of prototyping through to manufacture and business considerations” (Mob76 Outlook, December 2013)

Would recommend!!! 5*
I would recommend this book.
Adrian and Hakim obviously know what they are talking about. They both have experience of working on these kinds of projects. And, crucially, they also have the writing skills to pass their expertise on to the reader.
Some of the stuff in the earlier chapters, I already knew. But things like an introduction to TCP/IP and networking will be useful to many people who don't have such a technical background. Software, I can do - it was the chapters about hardware that I found most useful. I now know far more than I did about the different toolkits that are available for building internet-connected devices.
Part I is about prototyping your device and part 2 is about building it. I'm sure that other books cover these topics - although, perhaps, not in the focussed way that this book does. But it's part 3 where this book really shines. These three chapters cover business models, scaling your manufacturing process and some of the ethical issues that these devices raise. This section really makes the book a "one-stop shop" for finding all the information you'll need to take your vague idea to a complete product and (hopefully) a profitable company.
