I am a current student in computer engineering. I just completed a course in Microcontrollers that¿s focus was the PIC chip. I wish that I would have found this book before I started the course. I have gone through the book, and done some of the project. I have found that my knowledge of the PIC chip has greatly increased, as well as my general understanding of computer engineering. This book is written in a straight forward and easy to comprehend fashion. The book would be a great starting place for a beginner or a way to improve the existing skills of an advanced user. One of the main problems with finding a book for the PIC chip is that a good book just does not exist, (Until Now!!!!!). My complements to the Author. I look forward to the next edition.
If you are looking to use the Microchip PIC in your projects/products: here is the book to use for learning about the chips as well as designing the application. All four PIC families are included and the CD-ROM has a ton of datasheets and tools (also all the source code for the applications). What really blew me away was the inclusion of a PCB that cna be used to build a PIC parallel port programmer. I've never seen any book that is this complete.
