Some good basics if you are just getting started with arduino and have environmental monitoring in mind. One thing to keep in mind is that this is focused on specific gases and environmental stuff, not necessarily things like temperature, humidity and weather data.

You will definitely want to access the online code samples. The book seems to 'waste' a lot of space printing out the full code for the projects, so there is actually quite a bit less content than you'd expect.

Good little introduction to the kinds of the weather stations that can be built with the arduino. Good fun.
