Good Starters Guide July 14, 2013
Reviewer: James Manley from San Antonio, TX United States  
Its a good book to help you get started with arduino. I wish it had more experiments in it, but still good none the less. Im currently working on the experiment that creates a color changing lamp based on keywords off the makezine blog. --- to the review claiming the book doesn't give enough info. Page 73 discusses the processing app, and page 78 tells you what your doing with the tools menu. ---  this guide tells you everything you need to kno.

Title explains it clearly July 9, 2013
Reviewer: Ross Radford from Lathrop, CA United States  
This book is clearly geared toward Arduino users that know absolutely nothing about how to program them. That is a good thing however, because I was one of those people. The book teaches in step by step fashion using real examples which really helped me grasp the concepts in short order. In fact, the entire Preface was my childhood in a nutshell. The book does mention 'Processing' without a link to download. The assumption being made there is that people at least know how to do a web search; in my opinion, not a bad assumption. This book helped me get up to speed with the basics extremely fast. The price seems a little steep but perhaps it's worth the money to you for not having to dredge through the internet for hours for the one beginner's guide that finally makes sense.

Getting started? February 23, 2013
Reviewer: Disappointed customer from United States  
This is poorly written book. The first couple of chapters are simple enough but the last couple of chapters are not at all complete. The last one for example tells you to copy a sketch and in 'Processing' (whatever that is) click on the tools button. NONE of this is explained and no where does the book explain what "Processing" is or where to find it and how to use it! Don't waste your money on this awful book. It is not worth fifty cents. You can learn a whole lot more from many online sources. Based on this worthless book I will never buy another written by the same idiot. Hope no one else wastes their money on any of his books.
