Good but basic introduction to XBee

If you've never dealt with pull-up resistors, serial communications or wireless radios then this book is a good introduction. The material gets a little bit repetitive around the setup, configuration and troubleshooting of the radios but is otherwise clear and easy to understand.

Unfortunately the real power of XBee radios is only realized when using API mode, which the book mentions but does not cover to a useful level.

Consider this book as a good starting poi
The version of this book that I read didn't make it completely clear that this book is focused only on Zigbee protocol devices. Zigbee is a great protocol and is fascinating in that it has a built-in mesh networking protocol. However, the devices are pretty expensive, and so if you need simple sensor nodes for a project, you might want to try something else. There are a lot of commercial Zigbee based devices, so if you don't want to roll your own devices, Zigbee might be a good way to go. In tha ...more

This book is awesome! Some of it is overly simple, but there is enough information to keep anyone busy with projects and ideas.
A bit simplistic, but a nice introduction to zigbee and xbee
