Description: The Arduino is a cheap, flexible, open source microcontroller platform designed to make it easy for hobbyists to use electronics in homemade projects. With an almost unlimited range of input and output add-ons, sensors, indicators, displays, motors, and more, the Arduino offers you countless ways to create devices that interact with the world around you.
Arduino Workshop, you’ll learn how these add-ons work and how to integrate them into your own projects. You’ll start off with an overview of the Arduino system but quickly move on to coverage of various electronic components and concepts. Hands-on projects throughout the book reinforce what you’ve learned and show you how to apply that knowledge. As your understanding grows, the projects increase in complexity and sophistication.
Among the book’s 65 projects are useful devices like:
You’ll also learn to build Arduino toys and games like:
Arduino Workshop will teach you the tricks and design principles of a master craftsman. Whatever your skill level, you’ll have fun as you learn to harness the power of the Arduino for your own DIY projects.

I bought this based on comments I read here, and I’m so glad I did. Well written, easy to follow along and all the tutorials are easy to build upon and take further. More advanced users might not get as much out of it, but if you are just starting with Arduinos, it’s a great next step after the SIK.
I bought two books to get started with Arduino about a year ago. This is the only one I needed, great book. And works as a good reference later on.
Also note I picked 5 stars. And the website changed it to 4 - sneaky bastards. And now I can’t edit the rating.
