MEDIA REVIEWS
Definitely worth exploring (ICT in Education, March 2016) Remembering the intended target audience, the inevitable setting up chapters are both necessary and well judged, with details on cables and other information to enable younger makers to get going without adult help. Ignoring the For Kids branding, this book would be a valuable start for any nervous adult computer user keen to gain Pi enlightenment. (MagPi, September 2015)

“Good but out of date”

My son is working his way through it but it is. Already out of date as the new pi has many of the features built in already so the first steps are not necessary. Still great for learning the basics and getting started.
