"Overall, I was very impressed with this book. Fullam has given the geek community a valuable resource that will provide inspiration for aspiring and veteran hackers alike. It covers many projects that I have personally wanted to build or learn more about, and presents concepts that would be of interest to many fellow Slashdotters...I highly recommend Hardware Hacking Projects for Geeks to anyone with an interest in those fun projects that only nerds can understand."

"It has often been said that the motivation behind a hacker is laziness: why do for yourself what a machine could do for you? In keeping with that tradition, a true hacker will enjoy the fact that Scott Fullam has taken the trouble to document and explain these hacks to such a thorough extent This is an entertaining and informative read, and an eminently useful reference manual for anyone interested in accomplishing any of the included projects."

"'Hardware Hacking Projects for Geeks,' another in the enjoyable O'Reilly Hacks Series would likely appeal to anyone who as a kid took something apart, just to 'see how it works'. It's a book that encourages tinkering, experimentation, and a zeal to 'improve' the everyday gadgets and appliances that surround us."
