Useful arduino related books?

Hi all,

I am compiling a list of useful books for learning how to make projects using arduino, including books that teach the basics of electronics. This is the list so far:

As you can see the list is a bit empty, so what other books are there that you have read and would recommend to a fellow arduinoist? Any suggestions from electronics basics to robot building using arduino as long as it's going to help in making arduino projects!

Thanks :slight_smile:

Simon Monk has at least wrote 3 books (one to come out shortly) that are worth reading (I have not read them but I recall positive comments.

Have you googled Amazon for Arduino allready? Then have a look how many negative comments there are (I find these 100% more informative than the positive ones)

I like - www.earthshineelectronics.com/files/ASKManualRev5.pdf - very much, its free and good.

succes,
Rob

Thanks for the help! I have added Simon Monk's book "30 projects for the evil genius" to the list, as well as some other books with good reviews that I found on Amazon. I also agree that the earth shine electronics book is fantastic, it was the first book I read when I started learning about the Arduino! I shall be adding it to the getting started page on my site shortly :slight_smile:

Hi, This has been discussed on and off for a while.. I have collected what I/others thought were the best, and have a page here:
http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/Arduino-Books

I own and have read quite a bit of each of these books and several that I did NOT put on the list...

I have Alpha versions of books about 'Arduino Internals' and 'The Process of Arduino Engineering', which I will review in a while when they settle down.

LOTS of new Arduino books coming out all the time. Some of them are even good...

Yeah I have since found quite a few topics on this, I really should have done a search first! Your list looks good, I'm thinking of only including books I own and have read in my list from now on. That way I can make sure the book is actually a worthwhile book, I can write a proper review and I can sort the books into categories that might actually be of use to people! At the moment it's just a jumbled list of books that fit in the broad category of Arduino and general electronics... I begin reading tonight! 8)

Listing all books you know of, and marking the ones you have, have read, and have reviewed, would be more useful, in my opinion.
