This is an excellent little book that manages to pack a lot of information in.

If you even only know a little about C/C++ and the Arduino family, you'll still probably be able to get started from this book - it's that clear. Each section explains WHY you'd need to use the functionality, and then tells you a number of ways of achieving it.

A good example is the power saving information. Simon Monk has measured the current drawn by the board in various 'sleep' modes and gives a number of tips on how to code and design your circuits to reduce power to a few mA. Pro's and Con's are clearly explained. It's enough for a creative mind to run with.

I'm from an electronics and software background, so this book really was more of a reference of Arduino-specific information, but I should think anyone that's read a beginner's guide should be able to move on to this straight after.

This is a great book and I've found it very useful to get to know the Arduino. Lots of info on shields and different I/O protocols.
I've had previous programming experience and found the software (sketches) outlines, guides and examples just the job to get me going.

Maybe his first book on the Arduino would be a better starting point with no previous experience, or maybe not, difficult for me to say. In any case this will be a great asset for us Arduino explorers at some point in our fumblings with it.

For anyone moving on from basic Arduino this is a good step. Read the companion book Programming Arduino Getting Started with Sketches first, then this one. Ideal for getting to grips with more complicated interfaces like I2C, SPI, Ethernet etc. There is a bit of overlap with the first book but they are cheap enough not to worry. Recommended.

I bought this so as to get more into I2C interfacing for my Arduinos and, to a degree, this book helped. I say to a degree as there is still quite a lot of assumption as to your pre-existing knowledge on the subject under consideration.
And this is probably my major gripe with this series of books as a whole
Perhaps I am being overly picky and expecting far too much from a book but then again maybe not.
I would love to be able to rave about this book but, like it's predecessor, I feel that there has been an attempt to cram too much into too little leaving some annoyingly large gaps.
That it is a useful book I cannot deny but it still doesn't really hit the spot reliably.

The author's style is clear and easy to understand and I found this book, like the first, very readable. This gives confidence and the feeling that it's not so difficult after all. For me Monk's books have been an excellent companion into the world of Arduino with each section giving a good introduction to each subject. I found I was quite quickly able to progress to relatively complex areas with this book's help. As the author says the books are primarily about the software with the first giving a good start in C and the second building on practical topics. Thoroughly recommended.

This book covers an interesting range of topics for your next Arduino projects. Each chapter deals with a separate subject in a concise way using simple circuits and example code that does not require lots of components to demonstrate the basic principles. It provides "hello world" type examples rather than complicate projects, which I found easier to understand. I particularly liked the sections on Low Power, I2C and SPI interfaces. If you've mastered the basics and want to tackle more complicated projects this will give you the building blocks and understanding to take you to the next level. Definitely recommended.

Nothing too taxing or stimulating in the content. I had hoped for some discussion on splitting sketches into more than one file. I'm a little surprised this isn't covered as making your own library is; I know it's not really the same.

I wouldn't buy it again and when I'm bored it will go to the charity shop.

Excellent little book, just what I was looking for. Gives a good intro to some of the more advanced elements such as reducing power etc. In a few areas it could have given a little more info, but all in a good book, well worth the money.
