I appreciate that the author takes the time to indicate an electrical diagram for many of these projects, but that is not worth much of anything for the Pi. The user needs to have a clear indication of how to wire up the components on the project board to the GPIO pins. And to top it off the book is using an old Pi breakout (Pi Cobbler), which is even less understandable when you are using a Pi 2 kit which has the GPIO interface board.
For example, in the GPS chapter, the only diagram the user has on how to wire everything up is a black and white small image, where the jumper wires cross over each other making it difficult to see exactly where each is going. Granted the author writes in text to connect TX to RX and so forth, but it would have been very easy and clear to simply draw the layout. Figure 5-15 that diagrams all this is still confusing as some wire is running off into who knows where in the image, and is never explained.
Overall this is not a well constructed guide for a beginning user in a learning environment, which maybe it is not intended to be.
In other words, it tells you not only how, but why, on projects. You could spend hours on the Internet, trying to find details on how to use things like a GPS with your RPi but here in one place, you not only find how to make it work, but HOW it works, along with the sites you need to get the tools to use it, when it's finished.
Best of all, you don't have to be a "Genius" to use this, even if you're new to Raspberry Pi, you will easily follow along with these projects. The author writes in very easy to follow format. You will definitely learn while using this book.
The printing quality is mostly a problem in random number of the illustrations, especially the pictures and screen shots. Contrast and blurring makes it impossible to get any useful information out of them. And the size of some important illustrations is too small. For example, the "Project hardware layout" picture, figure 9-15 on page 121 is almost useless. A RaspberryPi is shown with a ribbon cable to a breakout board all sitting next to some other board that cannot be identified on top of what looks like more breakout board, perhaps all mounted on a Lexan or Plexiglas sheet. Considerable study of the text is needed to guess at the meaning of the picture, and I am certainly left with a concern that I am still missing something important.
In the following chapter, "1-Wire Weather Station", many pictures are uselessly dark, but much of this can be "replaced" with web searches.
Still, if you want to do real things with the RaspberryPi, here is a place to start. Perhaps the "evil genius" is that you will need to do a lot of outside research to complete some of these great projects. However, all of the projects are possible even for those of us who are neither evil or geniuses. However, don't start if you aren't determined to "git-er-done."
