"If you have started working with or have an interest in taking the next step toward machine-driven data collection and making sense of the information that transacts between physical interfaces, Real World Instrumentation with Python can offer readers a great primer and a notable head start."
-- Mike Riley,

"This extensive introduction and cookbook approach will be invaluable to a number of audiences... With the current proliferation of real-time embedded applications, hobbyists and makers and inexpensive data-acquisition hardware the value of this handbook is multiplied many-fold."
-- Ira Laefsky,

"Like the last Python book I reviewed, Head First Python, this book also has a lot of handy diagrams. But Real World Instrumentation is a lot more specific in application...If you're technically minded already and are fascinated by electronic theory, this book is for you."
-- Kim Crawley,

"Python's rapid development is already well known, and is versatile enough to be used in just about any situation, from mathematics to fully fledged graphical interfaces, but how do you control external hardware? How can you use Python to access a serial interface, talk to hardware on the desk, or even better, create our own interface? O'Reilly's Real World Instrumentation with Python explains all of that, and even more." Full Review >
