Hi, I am beginning to explore Arduino. I was speaking to a guy at a party and he recommended this book as a good starting point: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Making-Things-Talk-Practical-Connecting/dp/0596510519/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1311174423&sr=8-10
I've ordered it and I was wondering if anyone has read it and if so can they recommend a good kit to buy to compliment the book? I was looking at this: http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=596&gclid=CPTnwqebkKoCFQEf4QodnCTlwQ
Advice is appreciated.
