a Goggle and archive search and the lowest cost is $34.95 plus $6 to $7

Can you  give a little better idea of exactly what you are looking for
in a book?   That is, what do you expect to get out of one?  The answer
might make it easier to suggest something.

Try this tutorial from Microchip.
http://techtrain.microchip.com/x14/

If you want a good understanding in PIC, the book
should teach
you assembly. It will provide an insight to the PIC
architecture.

I'd like to know where you found the suggested retail price quoted as
$29.95. The publisher sets suggested retail prices, Square 1 is the
publisher, and their suggested price is $34.95.
You can buy the book directly from them at
http://www.sq-1.com/
Or you can help support the piclist.com web site and buy it from me at

For a book, this is the best IMHO. There are others and some of the ones
listed at
http://www.piclist.com/techref/microchip/books.htm are pretty good, but all
you really need is available on line for free at
http://www.piclist.com/techref/piclist/begin.htm

The average cost for this particular title is $34.95. MeLabs offers it for
$29.95 here: http://www.melabs.com/products/books/easybook.htm

We offer the same title for the same price with Priority Mail or UPS delivery
options here: http://www.rentron.com/Books/book7.htm

It's an excellent book for the beginner.

Dave has some seconds on his web site for $19.95:

I think it's a very good beginner's book. Many people will turn up
their nose at it, but when it first came out(with the original name,
before Microchip forced him to change it) I got a lot out of it.

Cheerful regards,

Bob

I bought the book in question when it was called Easy Pic'n  as well as the
Pic'n Up The Pace title and found it to be a very valuable resource.  I
tried the free method of looking up stuff on the net but didn't get very
far until I actually bought Easy Pic'n.  The book puts everything into easy
to understand terms and only shows you what you need to know to get started
instead of bombarding you with useless (useless to a beginner anyway)
information that only causes confusion and more things to worry
about.  After you have the basics down, web resources and the other
"useless information" makes a whole lot more sense and because valid bits
of knowledge.  I'm a hands on, lets get started type of person as opposed
to read the manual front to back in attempt to attain complete
understanding.  This book got me started very quickly and allowed me to
actually write (copy out of the book) a working program the first time I
opened it up.  Anyway, just my 2 cents.  I highly recommend the book.
