Comments about oreilly Raspberry Pi Cookbook, 2nd Edition:

The book can be used as a lookup reference on how to perform many procedures on the Rpi.
Finding and performing a certain procedure is as easy as looking up a recipe.
If you want basic and simple starting procedures, this book is recommended. The book is a bit boring as far as style but it is basically a collection of procedures

Comments about oreilly Raspberry Pi Cookbook, 2nd Edition:

Great book for the person who wants to interface the Raspi with external electronics. Lots of great info. But also a lot of external links to more information so it's not really a stand-alone book. You will likely read on your ereader, then open the PDF on your computer so you can get further info from the embedded links.

    I had started to compile a similar notes journal about how to do specific things with the R-Pi. Now I have this book which has usefully replaced it.

      Good book as a startup when starting working with your RaspberryPi.

      Easy to read. Gives you an overview of what's available in RaspberryPi. If you are not familiarized with Linux environments, helps you with the common commands and utilities.
