Very good book on Arduino development. Must have internet connection to download much of the needed code and added material. Offer for Ebook version inside book ($10). He's good at dropping all kinds of tips and secrets on PCs, Hardware, electronics and programming within the text. The sequel to this book was cancelled. To bad....
