To start with, the current edition of the book focuses mainly on the Uno and Leonardo boards, with one additional project based on the LilyPad purely for the aesthetics (it's the exposed "movement" of a binary wall clock). There's almost no soldering required in most of the projects, apart from a Protoshield, the binary clock, and a couple of peripheral boards. There's even one project (building the business end of an oscilloscope) where the book delves into one of Arduino's parent projects, the Processing IDE, to provide graphical display output that the Arduino serial monitor can't. Finally, the three added projects at the end take advantage of the Leonardo CPU's direct USB support to demonstrate its use as an input device, as both a keyboard shim and an accelerometer mouse. Mercifully, you don't need to know much about electronics beyond the basics of how to read a schematic and recognize specific components, and the longest code listings are no more than three full pages, so they're fairly easy to understand and modify.
As I said above, the projects themselves all shoot for being at least somewhat useful -- a SAD light to keep your murderous impulses under control during the dark times of the year, an LCD thermostat to keep the lasersharks warm, a hypnosis wheel to make your opponent's dark side turn on them, an infrared remote to TURN OFF THAT FRAKKING MUSIC -- sorry... *twitch* sorry... I was saying... what was I saying?
The book covers beginning to intermediate Arduino concepts well by using fun and interesting projects. Appears well written and I have not picked up on any errata as of yet, but am doing a read through first before I do any of the projects on my Uno. All of the projects appear up to date with respect to the most current Arduino IDE, but will give more feedback when I've run several of the projects firsthand.
I extracted Arduino projects, that were the basis for model railroad uses.
Pure novices with little electronics knowledge,should start with "Arduino for Dummies,"
also from Amazon.
I browsed around and could find only source code for what appears to be the 1st edition.
I did find it later on the authors personal web site.
After a closer look, I tried to withdraw my comment, but could not cancel it.
Now, I would give it all five stars.
