"30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius" balances theory and practice very well. It starts off assuming you don't know much about programming or hardware, but doesn't bore you if you already do. Chapter 1 starts out with a simple exercise that you can just follow the steps for. Chapter 2 circles back and gives a 10 page tour of Arduino and covers some theory. Don't worry - it is interesting theory.

The rest of the book uses projects to teach more hardware/wiring/program concepts. Each project has a schematic and circuit diagram so you can see what the breadboard looks like They even cover using a third party library.

The Appendix includes the part numbers at Farnell and Radio Shack so you can easily order what you need for each specific project.

I did notice one formatting problem: minus minus shows up as one long dash in the code. But if this is the worst problem, the book is in good shape.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for writing this review on behalf of CodeRanch.
