    I pre-ordered this as soon as it was announced; in dead tree format, no less, as I was expecting to refer to it at a workbench. I ordered it partly because I thought it would be a useful get up to speed on the Pi I'd bought, but also because I wanted to put some cash the way of Upton, as he's one of the leading lights behind the Raspberry Pi foundation, even if it had been mostly 'ghostwritten' by Halfacre.If I'm honest, I wasn't expecting it to be much; a few desultory articles on plugging things together, and a short guide to Python. It turns out that its actually a really great guide that I have and will recommend to anyone with, or planning to get, a Pi!The authors have made a decent spread of topics of things you might want to know and do with your device. As I read through it I thought how much it would have motivated me in my CDT course at school, having one of these. Heck, I even wondered why we didn't prototype in the electronics component of the course - was breadboard around in the 80's? Must have been, right? Anyway, its kicked my hardware hacking interest up a notch, even with my interest in Arduino (and thanks to the book I know understand why the Pi might be good some projects, and the Arduino others), so I will be shopping for breadboard and the like this weekend to start my project!

    The 2012 edition, which is what I had on hand, is getting dated. I see that a revised edition has been released, though.The material covered here is important, and particularly where it discusses the differences between the Raspberry Pi processor and its configuration versus the usual desktop Linux system. The 2012 edition is specific to the original Raspberry Pi, though, and does not contain details necessary for the newer models such as the Pi Zero, the model 2 B+, or the model 3 B.The writing is generally clear, though the author sometimes digresses into higher levels of detail without enough warning, and inexperienced users may find this confusing. It might be better to have such segments clearly delineated as "advanced users" or placed in an appendix where they are not essential to getting the device set up and running.Later chapters on software applications and programming tools are still relevant for all models.

    Very good introduction to the Raspberry Pi single board computer. I purchased the book because I was just introduced to the Pi and I wanted to get quick start. I found the book easy to read and, following the instructions, I was able to get my Pi and running on my network in record time. The Pi is a game changer and this book will help you jump on board.

    Good book, lots of great info if you just getting into Linux and the PI. I would have liked to see more on GPIO but I'm sure I'll find plenty on-line.

    Great book for the ultimate beginner, but I found just from poking around online and reading about things that were freely available I already possessed most of the knowledge from the first half of the book. The 2nd half of the book is just a bunch of step by step projects that you can complete as well as tutorials on the basics of soldering breadboards breakouts and other components. Regardless very will written and a great resource to have on hand for anyone interested in Raspberry Pi development.

    A very complete book. It really good book it's explain in a manner in the more simple way for some one like me that's is trying to get into this wonderful and ample world. I think touch every aspect and basic part of the pi. It give very amply or better idea in what is the pi and what you can do. ...

    If you are like me and thrilled by the potential applications of the Raspberry Pi, but are new to Linux and the device itself, this is your fundamental starting point. Being written by one of the Pi's developers, you really can't ask for a better author.

    One of the best written computer books I have read in a long time. Highly recommended!

    Very well written, straight forward and open minded towards higher level of solution. More example on how to use the Rpi would have been welcomed.

    Good intro book but it lacks of the more "advanced stuff" to get you really started but this is probably a totally different book.

    Not a bad book, but I would have liked a some of the key info summarised in tables at either the beginning or end of the book for quick reference.

    Great introduction to the Raspberry Pi. Hoping it will be useful to my boys and will encourage them to play with the board.

    Great Info -- Too ShortThe information provided is very helpful and quite detailed as far as it went--there just didn't seem to be much depth in any one section.

    Good introductory book, but it needs to be updated to include the latest Raspberry Pi release (Release 3).

    Really the best book for anyone who just starts exploring the interesting world of Raspberry Pi. Also very useful chapters about first steps in Linux and Python.
