    Ok, could be better.

    A decent introduction to the subject but with a few shortcomings. First, all the diagrams are what appear to be hand drawings, and some of these are not very clear. Second, no schematics for the projects are given; all inter-connectivity is given only in the form of breadboard drawings (see "First" above). Third, there is a quantum leap in the complexity of the project that involves Processing and too much hand-waving to explain what's happening. I think a simpler introduction to Processing <-> Arduino communication would be more appropriate for this text.
