The book also covers how to integrate with a wide variety of electronic devices and different Andruino shields. I only wish it covered the WiFi shields. It does cover the ethernet shields and the cellular shields though, so I'm sure I can figure out the WiFi and Bluetooth from the content of this book. I highly recommend this book.
The book also teaches you the basics (and the more complicated syntax/commands) of Arduino's programming language. Essentially, you get the fundamental building blocks of knowing exactly how to talk to your Arduino. It's exciting, especially as a person new to programming and circuits, to be able to manipulate digital inputs/outputs and work with electricity.
Aside from wanting a little more when it comes to reading schematics (it does tell you what the symbols mean) this is a great book for beginners.
Have had a lot of software development related books and this stuff is hard to present in an easy-to-consume manner & this author does it here.
I finished a couple projects using a couple of other books, then picked up this book and the lights came on! Excellent work by the author to create a technical reference that is readable to the lay-person. This is by far one of the best technical books I've seen in my career.
