however, if you do have a micro:bit, this is definitely the book to get you started; first of all, it is a Wiley book, with easy-to-read typography and layout
code snippets are included as an appendix to help you use some of the hardware and interface new hardware with the micro:bit - this is a step up from the poorly presented examples in many of the Raspberry Pi beginner books - so this is a helpful feature (in my opinion, there are some real stinker books about the RPi, including one or two from the RPi Foundation itself)
if you're interested in the micro:bit SBC, this book is a good companion to get you started - if you have experience with a suppported language, such as Python, you'll be well on your way to exploring the amazing features of this inexpensive platform
It's a wealth of information on MICRO:BIT and it's easy to read.
Lots of examples with clear explanations.
One flaw is that all the screen-shot photos are in black-and-white.
Color would vastly improve the readability.
But it's the best book on MICRO:BIT I've found so far.
