Very good intro
on March 8, 2014
This book covers an incredible range of topics - from scripting to graphics to using the GPIO pins. It is clear and easy to read with only a few minor typos. All of the code in the book is also available on the web site which saves a lot of typing.
If I had one complaint it would be that the book is truly an introduction in the first few chapters but seems to get a little thinner on the details later on in the book. For example, it spends a good bit of time explaining basic programming concepts such as syntax and logical constructs. And for most of the chapters it describes what is happening in the code line-for-line. But in the chapter on GPIO programming it says not to worry about how the function interacting with the hardware operates. This would have been a very good place to go into a lot of detail.
