LEGO® Mindstorms NXT Power Programming: Robotics in C
LEGO® Mindstorms NXT Power Programming: Robotics in C
by John C. Hansen
Edition: Paperback
Price: $20.58

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book but very poor graphics, June 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Book gives a wonderful basis for learning NBC and NXC but the Lego Mindstorms assembly pictures are all black and white and VERY non-descriptive. If it weren't for that I would have given it 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like it but find it hard to use, December 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The screen is so small and the resolution so high that unless you have hands the size of a child's it's difficult to use the touch screen. I will order a stylus and see how that works.

2.0 out of 5 stars 60 Pages Of Text?, October 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Although the book is fairly inexpensive I would have expected more than 60 pages of text. Best to just learn the C language and look at the appropriate API's for your platform to figure out the calls to the peripherals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but very dated, September 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Book has been around for a long time now and has very dated information. They have updated the code examples to MRDS4 but will not support the platform any further. Very in depth information though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good, September 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Expected to purchase additional parts for both the Arduino (NXT shield) and additional Lego parts, which I have yet to be able to find on either the author's website or at any of their distributors (which they list on their website, but in fact carry none of their products). Overall, very disappointed in the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it!, August 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the second Kindle Fire HD 16K I've had. The first one died after about a month and although the support person I talked to was prompt and courteous I never should have needed to call in the first place. My replacement Fire HD (like the first one) is very limited in storage. I can download about 4 books before I get a warning about running out of space. I think I'll go the NOOK route where at least I can add a micro-SIM to it. Very disappointed in Amazon's latest and "best" release.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good book but not on a Kindle, August 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Already in Chapter one I have two blank pages that should contain text and examples. Who knows what the other chapters will contain. I'm getting very sick of Kindle's translations of books and am about to toss my Kindle away. Think I'll just Rootkit it and use it as an Android tablet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally Worthless, June 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Android 4.0 Mini PC (Electronics)
Boots up fine but at the first mouse or keyboard click it goes totally dead and only a reboot will restore it. Tried several mice and keyboards (I work in IT) and same result. Returning it to Amazon.

WELL THOUGHT OUT AND WELL WRITTEN. A great expose on the inner workings of baseball and the people that manage the game.
