"Within a few pages you'll be brimming with ideas of what you want to do with your own Arduino kit."
-- Stu Teasdale, Compsoc -- Durham University Computing Society

"This edition is just as informative and useful as its predecessor; either edition will suffice most Arduino users."
-- Tony Cappellini, BayPIGgies

"Arduino Cookbook, 2nd Edition is an excellent reference book for anyone using Arduino in any way, shape or form, regardless of your experience level!"
-- Michelle, My Springfield Mommy

"Rather than an introduction to programming, the book is a smorgasbord of practical coding examples that allows one to tailor the examples to specific projects. People without programming experience may wish to begin with a general focused programming book prior to reading this book, though the coding examples are straightforward enough to allow one to perhaps combine an intro coding book with this book. Since most projects will involve working with electronic components, becoming skilled at wire wrapping and soldering prior to developing one's own projects will add enjoyment and reduce frustration. All in all, an excellent introduction to this fascinating DIY field. Highly recommended "

"This second edition is updated to cover the latest versions of Arduino software and hardware. Margolis is an expert on Arduino programming. "
-- Book News Inc.,

"This book assumes no previous knowledge on the part of the reader. Indeed you must have some basic understanding of electronics but just enough to be able to connect the Arduino board to your PC and also install and run the IDE software. If you know just that much, this book will take you to the next level. The information on Arduino is so scattered on the Arduino website and other sites, this book will provide the basis for a strong foundation for you. I like the style of cookbooks in general as "problem statements" and "solutions" are presented together followed by a "discussion" paragraph. " Full Review >

"The real strength of this book is presenting the broad landscape of what's possible for Arduino. Organized as "recipes", you can combine them to do all kinds of things. Knowing what is possible should help to stimulate your imagination. The book does not go deep into any one subject, choosing instead to give you just enough to get started, and pointers on where to go for deeper information." Full Review >
