Arduino For Dummies

The most recent milestone in my life has been to write a book, something that very few people, including myself, would have expected. I was approached by Wiley, (the technical book publisher, not the rapper) to write a proposal for Arduino® For Dummies®, which I did. 

They loved it, signed me up and before I knew what had happened I was writing a book. This would take me 9 months to complete. It was at times gruelling as I was out of my comfort zone, but ultimately I have learnt a lot and feel satisfied with the result.

Writing a book had never really crossed my mind because I've never really enjoyed essays or dissertations. All the most useful things I know, have been learnt in practice and this is what was so appealing when I first heard about Arduino, because we were encouraged to experiment and learn by doing. 

This way of learning is exciting and I also found that I enjoyed teaching others about it because I could share that same excitement with them. All I can hope is that same enjoyment can be gleamed from this book, so I hope you enjoy reading it.
