This is your basic problem / solution guide for many common things that you might want to do with Arduino. Most of the solutions are primarily software. However, the hardware ideas are sufficient and useful. Deeper theory is not given in these pages. There are additonal references given after each solution for those who wish to dig deeper. Recommended.
There are items and figures that - up to this point - are better presented by a physical book. Content gets 5 stars. Readability of code on nook color gets 3 stars. If you have an arduino, this book is a must-have. I program microcontrollers for work and i still learned nice techniques from this book that simply hadn't occured to me.
I own the paperback version of this book and and make good use of it. Taking prototype on vacation. Nook is much lighter than the book!
Some of the artwork is nothing but black rectangles. They obviously had problems converting the figures.
...but I can't. The NOOK for Mac app is worse than a beta version. Quite frankly it would be an insult to gamma. Perhaps they should work their way back from omega. That would give me hope for the eventual beta .
