This book is excellent! I dont know why it is priced so much on here, mine says $29.95 on the back. Anyway, this book focuses mainly on the PIC16F84A, however, the commands are the same for most PIC models. This is a total beginers book. If you have some basic knowledge in electronics, and the hexadecimal number system then this will teach you the PIC microcontroller from scratch. Even if you are not familiar with these you can still learn with this book, you will just have to do a little research on some topics.
I really am a fan of this book and the entire series by this author. I have also purchased several other books for learning the PIC16F and this one is the best hands down. It skips the nonsense and explains in clear detail the critical issues where people often get stuck. It truly mitigates a great deal of frustration for beginners. It is written for some one who has a minimal background in electronics. When learning a new technology, always the most difficult part is just getting started. This book has been invaluable as a resource to a beginner.
It is an excellent book that is all I can say about it at this time.At this time I am reading another book but will read this book next.
