I’m doing a lot of electronics and the Arduino helps me interface the modules with computers and musical instruments. I use the book as a reference to figure better ways to accomplish various tasks. This book is extremely complete, with hundreds of examples (called “recipes”). It covers everything I can think of so far. For example, I was recently looking for an explanation on the use of “prescaler” bits. Sure enough, there was a concise reference to this subject.
I think that this book will be extremely useful for the beginner and intermediate Arduino fan. The experts will also find it invaluable as a reference.
I bought the e-book version.
