Comments about oreilly Make: Technology on Your Time Volume 36:

I was really interested in this magazine because it gave an overview of a lot of different microcontroller and mini computer boards. I got it for free through the O'Reilly review program and frankly I'm glad I didn't pay for it.
If you're looking for various projects people have done, as with most MAKE magazines, this is a great little magazine to go through. If you wanted it specifically for a lot of microcontroller information, I think you'll find more information online about what you need. I expected more regarding the controllers but there wasn't nearly as much on it as I would have hoped but then again, this isn't a dedicated special version of the magazine like the 3D printing one that just came out.
Overall, it's a nice volume like many of the others but I personally had hoped for more on the boards they feature on the cover.
