What is a good robotics book for beginners?
« on: May 30, 2007, 03:55:11 PM »
Ok you should all be very proud of me for searching for my question before asking it. You said robot builders bonanza was good for beginners. You read it in 02 do you think there is anything better out or should I just buy bonanza?

Also is Robots for dummies any good?
If bonanza is recommended which edition do i get?

thanks for the time to get me the links, but it just keeps coming up as server error when I clik on it. Idk what it is because my internet has been working fine.

You could always go to the local library.
I went to one, and found quite a few books on mechanical, electrical, and programming engineering...
I even found a few specifically on robotics  :D
The best way to get to the top is to get off your bottom.

Ok... so I guess that is a no? THanks for the tip about the library. The reason I hadnt checked b4 is because other posts said it would be hard to find books on robotics. Even still as poor as my library is I doubt they have anything
