I see several books entitled c programing for microcontrollers or embedded systems and the like, none of which cover the Arduino platform. Then I see bools like C Primer Plus or C++ Primer Plus, which get great ratings and are quite thick might I add. I guess my question is would getting a straight c/c++ programing book be overkill, taking me in directions not relevant to microcontrollers, or should I be waiting for a book entitled C Programing for Microcontrollers with the Arduino?
I don't want to spent $50 to $100 on a book that won't do the job.
P.S. I think I speak for several newbs like myself when I say why has no one written that last book i mentioned?
