"I personally love the bird feeder that posts Twitter tweets to tell you when the birds are feeding or when bird seed runs low. They are just so many cool and great projects in here. I also love that the book is in plain English, so us lay people can understand most of it too!"

"When I first picked up the sample copy of Programming Your Home, I commented to my brother in law, the perfect book if you have ten grand in home automation equipment. Boy I couldnt have been more wrong. In this day and age the super-cool Arduino systems allow us to do amazing things to create home automation projects (and because its open source hardware and software, youre not limited to the home, but only by your imagination..... If youre interested in Arduino projects but maybe are a bit nervous about taking the plunge, this is the book for you. Its a nice and clear introduction to creating cool projects with this software and you are hand held (but not in a bad way) through a variety of different builds."
