Fairly simple and covers most of the aspects.

If you've never done anything ever with software then this isn't enough information to really help you.

I was hoping for a bit more on the content side. This is a extremely short VERY basic manual. Overall you'd be better off reading a getting started guide on a forum. If you've never done anything ever with software then this isn't enough information to really help you. But if you have...then this doesn't teach you anything. Why not 1 star? Why 2? Because i am sure somewhere out there is someone for whom this is perfect. My thought would be a jr high student who had an interest, but even then they are eventually going to be buying another book-might as well do that now instead of waiting.

I'm an IT student of programming and it helped me get acquainted with the Galileo. I attended a school which tried to teach me from the bottom-up circuitry but my real intention was to do programming. Having done circuitry at my previous computer repair job (replacing burned capacitors, ports... etc.) I found the school's approach insane, therefore I though about it and purchased the Galileo and have access to this book for free from my new school. I love this book's approach which emphasizes programming and it gets you off right away... plus its the only book out there so you might as well couple it with something in the lines of "Arduino for Dummies" to further your inquisition. If you're into computers from the top-down, and have no experience in circuit logic... then not only is the Galileo for you, but this book is also a must!

The Galileo-specific info is very thin - 90% of the book is old material for anyone who has used Arduino.

Fairly simple and covers most of the aspects. Great book to start off with Galileo. Liked the simple examples and sample codes.

This was a good fast read and walks you through several easy sketches and circuit builds. The problem is it leaves you wanting more and the book does not go past an introduction to Galileo. Also some good reference pages but it would have been 5 stars if this would have went a little further. All of this info is available on the internet with a 5second search.

I know the title contains "Getting Started" but that is literally all it does. If you are already pretty familiar with Arduino this book will do nothing for you.

Sometimes you just want to know where to start. It is like knowing the forest from the trees. This book did just that to me. I'm a computer professional but I am new to Intel's board which meant that I meed to actually understand what the board was basically capable of and what are the APIs and where the things I can generally do. In about two hours, I am up to speed, at least as a starter and that's not bad at all. I know that much from experience.

I recommend you get it if you are new to the intel platform.

As a newcomer I needed some instructions and this book helped a lot. There is a lot more to learn but this gave me a good base to start from.

This isn't a book about the Intel Galileo, it's a book about how to do Arduino programming for the Intel Galileo. I already know how to code the Arduino, what I was looking for was details about what makes the Galileo unique and some examples that leverage Galileo-specific features and capabilities. Instead it's mostly Arduino stuff.
