Wow! This is the book for the person who wants to know it all. Forget about the nonsense talk about the book containing assembler, or C programming examples. Even if you intend to use Melabs Pic Basic, or Pic Basic Pro, it is of immense help, if not a strict requirement, to understand how the chips actually work. This book will fill gaps in what you know about the PIC, or what you think you know about the PIC.True, you can use MeLabs Pic Basic and do some wonderful things with minimal knowledge of the PIC. However, if your goals are lofty, as in building robots, or any complex task, you will love what this book can teach you.The book does not skip on anything. Did you ever read a book and have questions on what you read? That will not happen with this book, it goes into great detail to explain the concepts, and how they apply to a PIC. The best PIC programmers do know something about assembler. This does not mean they write their projects in assembler, but some routines are best written in assembler for speed, and compactness.True, the book has a lot of drawings taken directly from the PIC application notes, but what they didn't tell you was that the author ads his own notes to point out some things that may not be so obvious. The author shows the notes, then there are notes to explain it all. Is there a better way to learn? NO, there isn't. You will be told to use the application notes for whatever PIC you intend to work with, so what could be better than knowing how to read them ,and understand them? Every book I have read, or glanced through all said the same thing, "Get the app notes on the PIC you are working with first."The programming examples can only help in giving the reader a greater understanding.
