First off I'd like to say that this is a great book if you want to learn how to build a robot from start to finish. I personally waited till I was done building the robotic arm to write this review. The book was easy to read, and understand, and took me through the process with ease. It lists everything you need, and even tells you where some parts can be ordered, although I wish it could of listed more specs, and suppliers. I'm not sure if I would recommend this book to the clueless begginer because there were a couple of technical erros I found, but worked through. One of the errors was in the PCB artwork which caused an LED not to light in the test program. The book also says you can build it for under $300. I think I spent about $500. That's not including the pic programmer, software, Visual Basic, and tools. Which even though most of that isn't needed, you wouldn't really be learning much if you didn't have it. If you at least have the tools, I would say that with the software, and everything else that you should have for the project, it would cost in the neighborhood of $1,300. On the plus side you'll be able to build your next project for under $300 once you have the proper materials. Nobody said it would be cheap, so make sure you're serious. I'm already designing my own project with the knowledge I gained from building the arm.

Decent book, projects were not quite what I was looking for but still some of the projects are portable to my usage.

It's a good book, don't get me wrong. This show's how home built DIY bots where made a few years ago. This won't be something to get for a kid I think, you will need to have a genuine desire to learn how these things were made at home before the advent of the Arduino and other such robotic controllers. It's a great book to get a stronger base of knowledge.

The first couple of chapters have pretty decent information on where to find and how to use certain tools and raw materials for building robots, but most of the components that I've since gone online to research are not available. This book is seriously out of date and shows its age once you've gone past those first few chapters into Visual Basic 6.

That being said, the information regarding working with aluminum and printing your own circuits is really interesting and beneficial. But if you are looking at this book expecting a direct how-to manual for building the humanoid robot, you will be sorely disappointed by the lack of available circuitry components necessary to complete the projects.

Karl does a good job of leading you through the basic concepts of humaniod robotics in this well written, well annotated and very descriptive text on the subject. His detailed plans are easy to follow and his programs are well written and well explained throughout. He provides specific recommendations for parts as well as vendors and spends time explaining his choices. If you're interested in learning not only how to write useful PIC applications for robotics but also how to build robotics that implement those applications, then this is the book for you. This is a must have for your library of robotics books!

Electronics are totally outdated, but the drawings/designs are still very useable. Buy it used. Not worth full price.

Great purchase.
This is the most awesome book on how to build your own robot all kinds of robots. I love this book.
