If you buy one book to learn about Arduino, this is the one to get, it is very well written, and fun to read.

At first I thought I wasted my money, that was because the book starts out in the beginning, and gives a lot of basic training on Arduino. After I got past the first 100 pages things started to get more interesting for me. The book is a great way to get into Arduino, and it will not only introduce you to Arduino, it will help make you a good programmer, and learn to do some pretty useful things with Arduino. The book has lots of projects that start out very basic, and go all the way up to putting your arduino on the internet and sending tweets from it. The book does not just toss the programs out for you to copy, it explains the process used to complete each project. The book is laid out very well. In most projects, he starts by explaining the goal, as in what he is going to teach you with the current project, then is outlines the hardware used in a hardware list, then the schematic where he explains what is done and why, then the program, where he explains each line of code so you can put it all together in your head. The book leads to firm understanding for the student. If you want to use this book as a study aid to learn the most, you should start by getting a quiet place to work, get all the parts used in the book, and start reading. I have a lot of books on Arduino, but this one is by far one of the very best.
