Comments about oreilly Make: Getting Started with Raspberry Pi, 2nd Edition:

I read this via my mobile and found it quite readable, except for a couple of diagrams.
I thought it was an excellent introduction for someone like me, with lots of PC experience but no experience of the Pi. The book really communicated the excitement and possibilities that the Raspberry Pi offers and the code fragments were very helpful.
I'd recommend the book to anyone who has some technical knowledge but I think it would be quite difficult to follow if you were a real beginner.
