In many respects this book has become the definitive guide to the Raspberry Pi. Published in the familiar Haynes Manual format, the 169-page manual comprises of seven sections packed with information presented in a clear, concise and well-illustrated format. The book is published in hardback and uses colour throughout. The individual sections are presented in a logical sequence, starting with a useful introduction and ending with several handy appendices.
The Raspberry Pi Manual assumes little previous knowledge, but nonetheless is designed for readers who are able to assimilate the information and put it to good use. It is essentially a practical book with plenty of hands-on content. To this end, material is presented as a series of “recipes” that readers can incorporate in their own projects. So, if you have little previous knowledge and if you only intend purchasing one book on the Raspberry Pi, then this has to be the one.
