Me and My Friend, Sonja Tschetter, decided we wanted to build a robot! So I searched and Searched and searched, but I never found a thing that was helpful. Until this book came along! Now, we are starting a robot making buisness and we are selling them! :)

The book is simple to understand even for a new person in the field. The author starts with the tools required and with procedure for fabrication of PCB,a good book to go through.
