From the Publisher
Insights from author Stephanie Moyerman
"This book is written to give readers a taste of everything—hardware, circuits, programming, Linux, communications, and scientific computing—and explain how each fits into the bigger picture of Making," says author Stephanie Moyerman. "If you’re looking to build or improve on big interactive projects, this book will help you along."
Stephanie has five must-do tips that will help everyone:
1. Don’t be afraid to break things or make a mess.
2. Google knows everything if you ask the right questions. Try and master a few key terms so that you can ask the right questions in times of need.
3. Carry micro-USB cables wherever you go. Not only will you be able to connect to most things, but you’ll also be a hero when your friends need to charge their Android phones!
4. If all else fails, power cycle.
5. Everything is easy—once you know how to do it.

Don't buy if you have worked with any kind of dev using Linux.
Don't buy if you want to understand the Edison architecture in any depth.
Don't buy if you want to write your own kernel for the Edison.
Buy if you want to use a devkit that sounds like it could be really powerful, but you don't care/need/understand that power.
So yeah. Tutorials that should be free written up as a book and sold to you for money. Returning this.
