I found this book to be about the best book anyone could need if they wish to get started using the Microchip Pic Processor. The book gets off to a good start by teaching the reader about the numbering system used with the pic. It then moves on to dealing with the syntax of assembly. I have various other books on the PIC from Mike Predko and David Benson It deals with what is required to perform the task of learning to program the PIC. This book would make an excellent teaching tool for a college as it is well written.

I found his book to be very simple yet descriptive. I like the fact that Mr. Morton uses several different PICs (16C5X, 16C7X, and the 12C50X) in his discussions

Rebound" by Kwame Alexander Don't miss best-selling author Kwame Alexander's "Rebound," a new companion novel to his Newbery Award-winner, "The Crossover," illustrated with striking graphic novel panels. I found his book to be very simple yet descriptive. Morton uses several different PICs (16C5X, 16C7X, and the 12C50X) in his discussions. I've been using the PIC for almost two years and have just about every book on PICs, I think this is a good book. I did not like all the pages that were used to give the example programs.

This book focuses on the re-programmable flash PIC microcontrollers such as the PIC16F54, PIC16F84 and the extraordinary 8-pin PIC12F508 and PIC12F675 devices. It is intended for students, teachers, technicians and electronics enthusiasts. Дополнительное описание

John Morton offers a uniquely concise and practical guide to getting up and running with the PIC Microcontroller. The PIC is one of the most popular of the microcontrollers that are transforming electronic project work and product design, and this book is the ideal introduction for students, teachers, technicians and electronics enthusiasts.Assuming no prior knowledge of microcontrollers and introducing the PICs capabilities through simple projects, this book is ideal for use in schools and colleges. The step-by-step explanations make it ideal for self-study too: this is not a reference book - you start work with the PIC straight away. The revised second edition covers the popular reprogrammable EEPROM PICs: P16C84/P16F84 as well as the P54 and P71 families.

I found this book to be very useful in learning quickly how to program PICmicros in general terms. The author goes from the basics of boolean logic and base-2 and base-16 number systems introductions all the way to analog-to-digital conversion and how to write to the eeprom of the 16C84. The important thing to remember if you are considering writing this book is that he covers three of the "early" PIC models, but the newer models have inherited qualities of these models. For instance the 16C84 led to the 16F84 which has now led to the 16F628.
I work in an electronic manufacturing services company, so I see a lot of PICs on boards that we manufacture, but haven't had the opportunity to see how the programs were written until now. One individual complained that he referenced "blowing" the PIC. This is not an uncommon term I've heard used for programming chips, since PALS, PLAs, PROMS and many other programmable chips are programmed by actually blowing fuses in the chip. While this is no longer the case with PICs (I don't think), the term I'm sure is still valid.
He includes a large number of examples, excersizes (with the answers to all in back), gotchas, and how-to's. There are numerous sample programs for each topic. A++++

First a warning: This book assumes you know basic electronics. If you don't know how to tell one end of an LED from the other, or worse don't know there's a difference, then this book isn't for you.
The section on intro to hardware is non-existent. The section on software is incomplete. The section on procedure, including emulation, compilation and burning (which for some reason the author refers to as chip 'blowing') are also incomplete. The example circuits are repetitive.
It does, however, give a good overview of the different families of PIC processors.
Overall the manufacturer's databook for the PIC processors would probably be more useful.

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and needed to use microcontrollers to control things in various design projects. This book explained the PIC so well that I now use it where I never though possible before. This book is a must for anyone wanting to learn how to use a PIC, even if you don't have a strong background in electronics (very basic knowledge required to build your own circuits). Even my buddy Twigs could learn using this book.

I have read serveral books on the PicMCU and this is by far the best one I had read. The other ones by Myke Predko are very confusing and are very repetitive whereas this book is straight to the point and it really gives reader a very clear understanding of the basics.

Written at a PIC 101 level and as such is fine. Less useful as a reference as your skill level improves

This book is relatively out of date. It deals mostly with the older PIC processors and techniques. The basic microcontroller data is there, but not in a clear format. I got it to help instruct a friend on microcontrollers, but I did not use it. Myke Predko's books are far superior,
