from Altadena, CA United States
The MakerShed site describes this book as follows: "Learn how to assemble the microcontroller on a breadboard (no soldering required), and immediately begin programming it."
From the title and that description, I expected that that the book would instruct me how to assemble the microcontroller on a breadboard. Actually, the book assumes that you already have an assembled Mintduino microcontroller, and know how to program it. The book describes using your assembled Mintduino to build a little game.
It's only $5 so I won't bother returning it, but I don't feel like I got what I wanted. I wanted instructions on "Building an Arduino-Compatible Breadboard Microcontroller," like the title of the book says.
