    Nice Book for the price

    This is a great book for people new to AVR MCU's who want to program in C. In my opinion there is only one better book out there, but it is pricy, and for some, may contain a lot of information you don't need. If you don't already have an AVR, I doubly recommend getting this book for an idea of what you're getting into. It doesn't include BASIC syntax, but why would you waste the power of this MCU by programming it in BASIC anyway? Use C or Assembly...this book makes it simple

    What about the other language - Basic?

    This book puts all the code on CD rom, so beware- software is not returnable. It is pretty hard to review the book without looking at the code. The code is written in assembly and C. What about Basic? It seems to have been written in a hurry. I do not recommend it for someone just starting out.
