Excellent Guide for all Raspberry Pi Owners
on 13 September 2012
I highly recommend this book to anybody who owns (or plans to buy) a Raspberry Pi.
It is well written, informative and interesting. The introduction gives you a very interesting history of how the R-Pi came to be, the aims of the project and the current state of affairs. There are many helpful guides on using your Pi, right from the basics of installing Raspian through to manually overriding memory allocation and overclocking (with suitable warnings of course!)
There are guides on setting up the R-Pi for a variety of common uses, from a desktop environment to a media center and even as a web server.
The tips on getting started with Python programming are great and have some very interesting examples.
It even goes on to explain how some of the currently available add-on boards work and why you might want them.
This book is just too packed full of information for me to possibly comment on every part of it (look at the TOC!), so I'll wrap up by saying, BUY IT!
