      Comments about oreilly Raspberry Pi Home Automation with Arduino:

      The title and the book description are very misleading. The book does NOT use arduino's with raspberry pi's. Instead, it uses arduino shields. Not only that, to work through the examples in the book, you need to also buy a special shield that costs 40 euros!

      This should be pointed out up-front in the book description.
