An overview of the Raspberry Pi and what can be done with it. Chapters cover
setting up
unix basics
running a media centre
running a web server and wordpress
programming with scratch
programming with python
using the gpio port

A good introduction to be aware of what is possible, but not intended to be comprehensive. Should give you an awareness of what the Raspberry Pi can be used for so that you can go off and look up more detail for making yiur own projects. I'd recommend as a good introduction, especially if you are new to Raspberry Pis. ( )
