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.

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.

Very good beginning book. The examples are excellent as they don't assume too much knowledge of the Intel Galileo board. Even though I've been working with the board over a year now, I still use this as a reference occasionally.

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.

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

If you complain about this book being to simple then dude just get a book that covers python, arduino, and electronics in a more detailed manner. Thats why the title of the book is "Getting Started..." all in all a good book to help you get going.

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

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.
