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.

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.

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

This book is very, very basic. It's more of an extended manual then a getting started guide. I had hoped for something that would focus on the unique attributes of the Galileo over arduono & other boards. But instead it covers even less then the arduono books it references.

The book spends far too much time on basic set up & installation as well as a lot of time talking about the maker movement & why boards like this are cool. It then spends a lot of time on basic C & Python coding tutorials. It really only covers one unique Galileo feature: the system() function. And the few code examples it has, are barely explained.

Save your time & money, read "Getting Started with Arduino" & " Going Further with Arduino" these have a much greater breadth & depth of information.

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.
