Well written with a sense of humour and therefore fun to read.
It really makes you really want to build!

HASH(0x95a4aeb8) von 5 Sternen Evil, Ingenious. 24. Mai 2011
Von Bruce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a must have for any "mad scientist" in your life. The projects are giddy-up fun to read and you can actually build them without being an engineer.

There is a website for the book with videos, color photos, corrections, and lots of other goodies.

Even though there are only 15 projects, each has possibilities for your own creative spin-offs and "mods" (modifications). This is a tinkerer's or maker's garden of delight.

Their is a certain hilarious joy that only a ping-pong ball machine gun firing 10 rounds per second at over 40 feet per second can bring.

Everything here is completely buildable. And there is a happy flexibility in the type of parts you can use. For instance, say you don't want to power your roving robot with rechargeable screwdriver motors. Well a quick trip to your local "dollar" or thrift store and you can find a pair of similar motors in some other gadget. Great for recyclers. Each project gives you just the right amount of theory so you adapt it to parts you have on hand.

And the range of inventiveness here is tremendous. Some projects are powered by low-cost chips; yet another uses 25 pounds of sand as its power source.

I also purchased 30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius by this author and was delighted by how much I learned; but even more about how much I could "mod" the projects. I was impressed by how the author is interested in his reader's projects. His intelligence and enthusiasm light up every page.

HASH(0x95a4af0c) von 5 Sternen My "evil genius" loves this book 4. Mai 2014
Von Kitchen goddess - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
My husband bought this book for my sons 10th birthday. He is a lover of all inventive building projects. The projects in the book all have clever and interest catching titles to draw your little builder in. The book is really intended for someone older than 10 unless there is a lot of parental help. My son cannot build any of these projects on his own.

HASH(0x95a4e288) von 5 Sternen Creative Electronic Projects Guide 28. Mai 2011
Von Mariano Figueroa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This new edition to the Evil Genius series is tons of fun. Most of the projects involve some electronics and there is a difficulty scale that lets you decide how Evil you want to be before you get started. I really enjoyed the levitation project, making things float is always cool. Some projects use the ever so popular Arduino microprocessor board, giving you a taste at what the Arduino can do. All the projects really are step-by-step and each project has a theory section allowing you to understand what is really going on.

HASH(0x95a4e7b0) von 5 Sternen Good for what it is, and perhaps for the intended audience 29. März 2012
Von Mark Colan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
PROS:
Imaginative variety of novel projects
Some reuse of existing technology
Early introduction to Arduino microcontroller

CONS:
Very little explanation into how things work: not a good learning guide
Arduino content needs to be updated

Okay, I'll admit that I am not the target audience for this book. I came to it because I have been doing a systematic examination of all books I can find on Arduino, and this book has three projects that use that microcontroller technology. The gleeful verbage of the "evil genius" is probably better suited to someone in their teens or younger rather than a peaceful subgenius like me.

For example, I am not particularly interested in guns, and the first six projects are about guns or accessories. Other projects include a laser-grid intruder alarm, persistence of vision display, radio bug, laser voice transmitter, flash bomb, LED strobe, levitation machine, light-seeking microbot, and surveillance robot. I would call them novelties, something to build once, perhaps, but not items of lasting value. The military flavor also interests me not so much.

The Arduino projects are among the more interesting projects from my perspective . The Persistance of Vision display is easiest to understand if you look at the picture at the author's Web site, www splat dangerouslymad splat com, then click on the link for this project. Spinning a single band of LEDs that are flashing on and off a pattern at a particular speed spells out a message because of their movement, and a trick of the eye. The levitation machine would make an interesting science fair project, combining physics with an unusual use of a microcontroller, and the surveillance robot makes an interesting introduction into microcontrolled robotics.

What bothers me is that the focus is on building the projects - where you tend to get most of the detail of what you need - and not on explaining much on how they work - where very little explanation is provided of the sort that would allow you to go on to design and build your own projects; a tutorial, it is not. For that, you would look at a book like Make: Electronics (Learning by Discovery) (for pure electronics) or Practical Arduino: Cool Projects for Open Source Hardware (Technology in Action) (for microcontrollers). But perhaps those are books intended for a somewhat more mature audience.

Speaking of Arduino, the projects that use Arduino in particular give information for obsolete versions of both the microcontroller boards (Arduino Uno R3 being current time of writing this review) and the development environment (Arduino IDE 1.0 being current now). Of course, Arduino was changing rapidly at the time it was written, the changes are not too big, and with some googling you can find out the right way to use the IDE with the current boards.

The photographs are of poor quality. Some of it is the cheap printing from the publisher, but the contrast could be adjusted to make them easier to make sense of.

BOTTOM LINE

If this book succeeds in sparking interest in electronics in someone, then it's four stars for that person. For me personally and my needs, it's three stars. I'd give it three and a half if I could.

HASH(0x95a4e7c8) von 5 Sternen Has problems, but I like it anyway. 13. Mai 2013
Von D. Bird - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Needs experienced adult guidance. There are sometimes important steps and items left out. For instance, on one project it needs an Arduino power plug. But, that item is left out of the list of materials to acquire. It's needed for another project too, but in that one, it is listed. In another case the pictures and plans are inconsistent. An inexperienced builder would not know which way to go, and one way does have advantages over the other. Another case, uses a leaf blower. Claims that nearly all blowers are built the same way and can be adapted. Not true. The particular blower used is available only outside the US. And nearly all other blowers would need to be modified in such a way that they would not be useful for anything else - in other words destroyed for the original purpose.

But, if this is used or supervised by someone with experience, or who has good project sense, it is good. Has interesting things for a boy to build. Probably not so interesting for girls as boys though. And, with proper supervision or experience, most of it looks buildable and fun for a kid to do.
