It's not really all that great mate.

Infact, I hate seeing 'for dummies' books in my room for some reason. They are so badly written im comparison to other books available (such as bonanza and intermediate robot building)

Robot Builder's Bonanza is a good book to have and you shoud go through all of it. It covers almost all aspects of robot building, giving you all the basic knoledge you may need and some. You will find there several robot projects and lots of resources. The second edition has Lego RCX, Basic Stamp, OOPic, and other microcontrollers, programming, sensors, motors, building robot bases, robotic arms...

Take a look at the electronic version and if you like it, buy the hard copy, it is well worth it.
Check out the uBotino robot controller!

I agree, i have bought the third adition it covers everthing, i think it is better than the first and second editions.
