Here’s my thoughts on a couple of that I’m currently reading.

Make: Electronics

by Charles Platt

This book uses a series of fun and interesting experiments to provide a great introduction to the basics of electronics. Note that the cost of the components to complete the experiments can be over $100 US.


Arduino Robot Bonanza

by Gordon McComb

This book provides a solid introduction to Arduino-based robots. I worked through a few chapters but have put work on Arduino-based robots on hold for a little while as I work through building my foundation in electronics and Arduino via the book above.
