    This is a wonderful text and written by a girl geek in plain English. Whooot Whooot. Very clear pics and several web sources to visit for more info are included. I subscribe to MAKE magazine and pre-ordered the print (not kindle) version when I saw that it would soon be available. Didn’t disappoint me. Love it Love it Love it. It’s an easy read. If you know almost nothing of electronics you can figure out what she’s saying (I’m an engineer…but you don’t have to be one)… and with very little investment you too can become a “maker” — if you want to see what’s out there, visit a Maker Faire — they are held in Michigan (Ann Arbor, Detroit), the West Coast, Atlanta…all over. And check out instructables online too — you’ll find many examples of embedded electronics in clothing. This book is probably the best “How-To” I’ve ever read. Get it, and you won’t be disappointed. I promise.
