Fahad Monib Siddiqui's insight:
The book does a really good job of explaining some complicated stuff to people unfamiliar with those technologies. Important issues such as button bounce are also discussed. Things are covered in just enough detail to educate without overwhelming the reader. As many of you might know, I am a fan of the BeagleBone Black (aka Raspberry Pi killer) and am glad to see people doing cool things with this great board. Review excerpt from review post by T.
