Reviewer Opinion

To know the satisfy of this Programming Arduino Getting Started with Sketches 1st Edition book by Simon Monk, please read some reviewer opinion below.
  • J. Fulmer on December 29, 2011, "Having just started using the Arduino last summer, I can say that this is the ABSOLUTELY BEST book a person could get to become familiar with the Arduino. I've been an electronics hobbyist for years but mainly dealt with analog world with minimal interest in too much on the digital side. I did programming but never with a microprocessor until I got my Arduino last summer. Now I'm hooked. Unfortunately, the usual books for "helping" with Arduino give sketches and explain bits and pieces without ever doing an overview of the system. However, this book is fantastic. Just got it today and have read over half of it; I've marked it up with pen to remind myself of crucial facts that I wish I had known a few months back. I programmed in Fortran (antique language) and BASIC before, but never learned the C programming language (the language of the Arduino). Thankfully, this book assumes no knowledge of C language and holds your hand through the process. It does a wonderful job explaining what each section of the programming does, it explains the hardware of the board, and it explains how the board communicates with the computer. At long last, instead of just copying and pasting someone else's program and hoping I can modify it to work for my own purposes, I can understand WHY certain things work the way they do."
  • Bruce Miller on January 24, 2012, "Why wait to connect your Arduino microcontroller development board to your Ethernet network? Or to use a full alphanumeric LCD display? In fact why wait to learn the complications of the C language? In 151 clear, easy-to-follow pages, the author more than makes good on his promise to help you get started with so-called sketches (computer programs) for Arduino. He actually gives you the building blocks to realize the original dream of Arduino -- namely electronics for the rest of us."
  • Tom Servo on April 8, 2012, "I am experienced with microcontroller systems but new to Arduino. Here's what I think of this book: THE GOOD: + For a beginner it's very readable and isn't "here's a bunch of theory and then we do fun stuff". The book is very much hands-on oriented, giving just enough explanation related to the task at hand (which is both good & bad, more on this below) + Book is thin and small, will not cause "I have to read and understand all that?" anxiety for beginners. THE BAD: - The use of timer interrupts is not discussed at all in this book. I found this disappointing as timer interrupts are a common way to handle "background" tasks (this is where you can run code at specific time intervals). One could argue that this is not a beginner topic but since pin interrupt-on-change interrupts ARE discussed I think timer interrupts should have been as well."
