Robot Builder’s Bonanza

Gordon McComb
I have a soft spot in my heart for Gordon McComb and this book. They are what got me into hobby robotics in the 1980s. This book is a classic, the title that pretty much launched the hobby robotics space. This new edition brings the book into the 21st century and covers everything from mechanical systems and working with various building materials all the way up to using microcotrollers and a wealth of sensors. This is the best overall book about building personal robots that’s currently on the market.
