Nice and Diverse

Comments about oreilly JavaScript Robotics:

I found the diversity of projects interesting. I have pretty much all of the hardware platforms used in this book and it was nice to see projects for all the different platforms in one place.

While I did not receive any form of compensation for this review, I feel I should disclose that I have a familial relationship with one of the authors. That not withstanding, I still enjoyed the book as a whole.
