Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Donat (independent scholar) provides a volume that is about equally divided between background material (Python, Circuits, the Raspberry Pi) and a set of stimulating `maker' projects that combine coding, circuit-building, and mechanical construction. The writing style is casual but clear. ... the determined hobbyist with sufficient experience will find the background material useful and the projects challenging, stimulating, and rewarding, and the book likewise serves as a useful resource for libraries hosting makerspaces. (C. Vickery, Choice, Vol. 56 (6), February, 2019)
