This book is exactly what I needed to begin playing with my Raspberry Pi B+. It covers the very basics to a little more in-depth, but nothing expert level.
I removed one star for not including images with the projects. They mention GPIO Pin # whatever, and they have a little label that shows pins with GPIO #s, however, what they do not explain is that the numbers in the diagram do not correspond with the GPIO numbers they are using in the projects. To use the GPIO numbers they state in the projects, you need to count the pins, starting with the 3.3v pin on the bottom left to get to GPIO pin# whatever, so that you can plug into the breadboard. I had to do an internet search to figure this out, and luckily, I did not fry the board because of confusion.
One last thing, I was a little surprised that there was no color inside, as one of the reviews stated that they did not like the eBook because of their reader being black and white...but every page IS black and white...so I was confused by that review.
