I read the early, unedited release of the RaspberryPi Cookbook, but this doesn't mean it isn't complete. For a starter in open source hardware (like me) this book is perfect. It explains everything and when say everything I mean everything :), it helps you to choose your hardware, it gives you advices what power supply should you choose for your RaspberryPi based on what do you want to use it for.
