BOOK REVIEW: Raspberry Pi (A Haynes Manual)

Written by: HTU | Published:

The Raspberry Pi computer is very much in fashion. Politicians and others have bemoaned the ICT curriculum and the movement away from computer science – this book itself refers to the “dark years" of the 1990s where computer users used programs simply to complete tasks, not concerning themselves with what was going on under the bonnet.

The Raspberry Pi computer is very much in fashion. Politicians and others have bemoaned the ICT curriculum and the movement away from computer science – this book itself refers to the “dark years" of the 1990s where computer users used programs simply to complete tasks (e.g. word processors to write letters), not concerning themselves with what was going on under the bonnet.



The Raspberry Pi is very much being pushed as a way of getting children and others interested in programming.



For those who are used to such publications, it would be enough to say that this is a typical Haynes manual – full of detail, clear instructional writing and full colour diagrams to help you get the most out of your Pi.



Just as would be the case with the Haynes manual for your car, many will find the detail that it provides overwhelming.



I would suggest that the most likely beneficiary of the information in this book would be the home enthusiast, ICT subject leader or technician.
