'Beginner's guide ?'

It's exactly what it says : beginners guide. No complaints there, but
don't expect it to be anything else. As a user with no previous experience
of PICs but plenty with microprocessors in general, I found the Microchip
data sheets and application notes and the suggestions of people on this
group more useful than the book.
This view might be a little biased, as my first project was on the 16c84
which the book doesn't cover at all. It could probably use a 2nd edition
to cover the newer parts (especially those with interrupts).
I would think it would be useful to a person with no microcontroller
experience, and my impression is that Microchip are especially targeting
this market with the PIC. Don't get the impression that I think it's
useless - it's just not for everybody.
