A Beginner's Guide to Using the PIC Microcontroller by David Benson
top rated with 5 stars
An easy-to-read introductory text with many hands-on examples. Focuses on the old PIC16F84A, however, the commands are the same for most PIC models. Home published. Very clear writing, no techno speak. This is a total beginers book. If you have some basic knowledge in electronics, and the hexadecimal number system then this will teach you the PIC microcontroller from scratch.

and Customizing the Pic Micro Second Edition by Myke Predko
For pros and advanced hobbyists. Second Edition covers the 16F876/877. This book is by most accounts the best book around on the subject. It would be perfect except for a number of tyographical errors and being just slighly out of date. Available from Amazon.com, Buy.com
|Embedded Design with the PIC18F452
Microcontroller by John B. Peatman top rated with 4.5 stars at
Code templates introduce readers to this new (2002) part. Examples for typical usages of LCD displays, A/D, Interrupts, I/O pin considerations, timers, math subroutines, I2C/SMBus usage, UART, etc. There are supporting code template designed to suggest possible code organization. The book develops a very useful utility (SASM) to preprocess PIC assembly in an attempt to make assembly language more structured. The utility IS NOT required and the rest of the book may be read without using the utility. Written for a semester long college course. Plenty of detailed illustrations. Sample problems at the end of each chapter. A blank PCB for the "QwikFlash" development board is included with the book which can be populated with parts from Digikey or other supplier for about $60. The firmware for the "QuickBug" bootloader is available from http://www.picbook.com/downloads.html

Quintessential PIC Microcontroller by Sid Katzen
Uses the PIC16F84 as the exemplar (and uses words like "exemplar", "whilst", and "quintessential"). Exhaustive, serious, but still sort of electronics-hobbyist friendly. Lots of examples, both theoretical and practical. All 16Fxxxx peripherals such as Capture/Compare/PWM, ADCs, comparators covered. If you turn corncobs into diamonds, this is your book!

|PIC Microcontrollers, 50 projects for beginners
top rated with 5 stars at
is written by Bert van Dam. This beautiful book contains 50 fun and exciting projects using microcontrollers.
You can use it as projects book and build the projects for your own use. The clear explanations, schematics, and pictures of each project on a breadboard make this a fun activity.
You can also use it as a study guide. The technical background information in each project explains why the project is set up the way it is, including the use of datasheets. This way you'll learn a lot about the project and the microcontroller being used, and you can expand the project to suit your own needsýmaking it ideal for use in schools and colleges.
This book can also be used as a reference guide. The explanation of the JAL programming language and all of the expansion libraries used is unique. Using the index, you can easily locate projects that serve as examples for the main commands. Even after you've built all the projects it will still be a valuable reference guide to keep next to your PC.

Kunstmatige Intelligentie - breng uw microcontroller
Leer hoe u een neuraal netwerk in een microcontroller opzet, en hoe u het netwerk zelflerend kunt maken. Ontdek hoe u robots kunt kweken, en hoe u door verandering van een fitness functie een totaal ander gedrag krijgt.
Merk hoe een PC programma uw zwakke punten vindt en deze in een spelletje meedogenloos uitbuit. Bouw een robot met een eigen wil, of laat een robot uw parket stofvrij houden.
Talloze technieken uit de kunstmatige intelligentie komen in de projecten aan de orde zoals expert systeem, neuraal netwerk, subsumptie, emergent gedrag, genetisch algoritme, cellulaire automaat en roulette hersenen. Ieder project bevat duidelijke instructies met schema's en foto's zodat u meteen aan de slag kunt. Overal vindt u ideeën en veel literatuur verwijzingen om nog veel meer projecten te kunnen maken. Zelfs als u alle projecten uit dit boek gemaakt hebt zal het zodoende nog lang als ideeënboek en naslagwerk naast uw PC blijven staan.
Een uniek boek voor iedereen met interesse in kunstmatige intelligentie en lerende machines.

Dont waste your time with the elcheapo PIC programmer on page 601, the gate of an n ch mosfet used to bring MCLR pin to ground does not have a pull down resistor, so it is always ON. The rest of the circuit is dodgy around this area so the chip will never be able to be programmed. PS dont try to conact Predko about this as the email address is not valid. This book sucks quite a bit and is all over the place with ASM code on one page and C code on the next please get it straight and stick to one type of programming method and have some consistency between pages.
