The book just contains some "projects" exclusively utilizing API's from TEMBOO.com.
All IOT technology described can be simply generated by the YUN wizzards on that site.

So after reading you would still understand little about how "the internet of things" actually works.
Buy a book to learn how to use just a single API provider that bills your credit card?

Arduino.cc, adafruit, etc. have way better study-material available - free of charge.

Format: Kindle Edition
The book is well done and nicely written. It shows some of the powerful features of the Arduino Yún by guiding the reader in making 4 different projects: from a home weather station that puts your home temperature on a google spreadsheet, up to a complete robot (with wheels and everything!) that can be driven from a web page.

I liked how the author guides the reader in making small successful steps. This approach is mandatory with the Yún, which is usually defined as a "different beast" because of the number of possibilities it opens.

The book is based on the first version of the Yún: newer versions were released in the meanwhile and are available for download. At the time of writing, some limitations have been removed. For example, you are no longer bound to UVC webcams only and you don't have to download additional packages such as mjpg-streamer from unknown websites: just type "opkg install mjpg-streamer" and you're good to go.

I didn't understand why the author asked the reader to set up a webserver on her own computer. I suppose he thought that was easier, but I think it's a shame since the Yún can run a PHP website with no problem.

The book is for readers with some basic knowledge of the Arduino platform, of electronics and of web related things: if you get stuck, code for each project is provided and is available online.

Overall it's a good book and I enjoyed reading it.
