Way overpriced and glosses over, with a lack of depth

5.0 out of 5 stars Made for your first project, but with great tips for pros. 2 Mar. 2015
By Troy Nachtigall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As Wearable Tech books go, this one is stellar. Just the right mix of How To and Why it works that way. The FLORA has become the standard in wearable design thanks to it's on board USB and LIPO battery ports. Becky and Tyler have really created a great book that although it says "Getting Started" on the cover, really covers all aspects of working with a Flora. (Including Analog Input )
It covers washing your wearable project which makes it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great intro to wearable electronics 25 Feb. 2015
By N. B. Pettis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Becky Stern is a champion. She is pioneering the use of microcontrollers that are embedded in the things you wear and she's sharing her progress so you can take the ideas further. This book is an overview of the technology and a project to get you going on your way. It's a quick read and a good introduction to wearable electronics, sensors, and the tools and skills you'll need to make your project take off.
1.0 out of 5 stars Marked up material thats free from the same vendor online 4 May 2016
By SomeGuy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A copy/pasta from the website at an extremely marked up price. Your getting nothing in here you can't find in the online tutorials, a lot less actually. I'd be great if you could use this as supplemental learning material in a classroom setting for children but for the price and lack of pages with viable content vs using oversized imagery and size 14pt font to make it the 100 page mark, its an embarrassment.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good overview, get the Kindle version 26 May 2016
By Dante B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A nice overview of creating wearable clothing. While specific to Adafruit Flora, the information can be applied to others such as Gemma and Lilypad. I would recommend getting the Kindle version and save both money and a few trees.
