Many people may wish to migrate from the Arduino to the RaspberryPi or to a "real" computer, while many are content to remain in the shallow end of the swimming pool for now. For those wishing to branch out into other microcontrollers or even to "real" computers, Dr Monk's little volume will give you the background information you need to bridge the gap. Users who want to truly understand how the Arduino works, and who may wish to leave the Arduino behind and start programming the Atmel chips on which it is based, will not be disappointed.
Good technical writing is a skill unto itself. Monk has the technical and practical know-how needed to understand Arduino programming, but also the separate skill set required to really explain it to those who don't come from a computer-science background. For the price of a couple of lattes at Starbucks, I got a book that will keep me company for a long time. This is probably best viewed as a reference volume, not as a standalone introduction. Buy it and another book or two, get your Arduino and some accessories, and go to town!
I had just received my Ardunio starter kit about a week before and blew through those projects in a hurry.
Still I had so many questions about the differences in the many other Ardunio boards, and how to select and how to turn on bigger motors, or servos, or multiple devices. (Music your think or WIFI, or internet connection? explained here)
This book takes you from a beginner to almost anywhere you want to be, and even if you never use all the capabilities in all the Ardunio boards, the author explains how and why to program the Ardunio projects to run faster or slower, to save batter power by going to sleep and awakening and to save on power of a remotely stored Ardunio running on battery, he gets into libraries, hex and decimal coding, and explains it in ways that even this 68 year old man could understand.
He provides you with sample code (sketches) that you can easily use and modify for you own use. Ardunio is an open source code so all sketches are available for sharing and using and your are encouraged to share your own work.
I love the color photos and diagrams available on the Kindle format (app in my iPad) and have it with me when ever a mental question pops up.
YOU WILL LOVE WHAT YOU CAN LEARN FROM THIS ARTHOR, EVEN IF YOU NEVER USE ALL OF WHAT HE TEACHES.
5 STARS FROM ME. MORE IF IT WERE AVAILABLE.
BTW this is the best review I have ever given any product ever purchased for any amount of money.
Mr. Monk and I are competitors and in some ways I wish he would retire from writing. However, doing so would severely lessen the talent pool for Arduino books.

BUT - Why the heck didn't they make both books the same size ?
