Review of RaspberryPi for Secret Agents
This is a useful cookbook with a “provocative title”.
If I were a professional secret agent I hope that I would be using considerably more powerful techniques than those described in this book. However, I suspect that if I was to start experimenting with such techniques I would probably get a visit from those “strange men in grey macs that don't officially exist” and feel that they “know what's best for me - on behalf of whatever the current elite they repre

Raspberry Pi for Secret Agents. Trendy title. While I wondered how serious it could be, the author's name got my attention - Stefan Sjogelid. Now that is already promising. This is the guy behind the idea, that if you're eager enough, you can build your own Linux distribution targeted at the Raspberry Pi architecture. The whole process is thoroughly described on his dedicated web site. And expectations slowly started to rise.

Now with this book we're in for a treat. At least we don't get the usua

Raspberry Pi for Secret Agents is a great book. Concise instructions on real world situations. You'll enjoy every page of it.

I won't list all the details as you can find them in the TOC. All sections in the book explain how to do the experiments it in Mac, Linux and Windows.

After the intro on how to set up the device with a touch of history comes the real thing.

First on Audio: Recording, listening, distortion, voice generation, broadcasting, scheduling the actions. A lot of real world situations

Other than the "secret agent" goofiness (OK I admit it, it *was* kind of fun) Raspberry Pi for Secret Agents offers quite a bit of information on configuring peripherals on your Raspberry Pi, performing essential linux system maintenance, and giving you some ideas on how you can use your RPi to capture and/or control the world around you. It was a good read and the information, while maybe a bit lacking in detail at times, was well presented. Bottom line is that if you want to learn how to make ...more

A great book for beginners on the Raspberry Pi. It covers the basics you will need in the operation of Linux and covers the tricks step by step which helps a lot in understanding.. The explanation of the various packages of Linux and their usage for various tasks helps keep working in Linux for a beginner easy. Overall a great book with amazing content. If you want to start your work on the Pi, this book better be by your side..

The book is very interesting and useful even if you are not a linux and embedded system's expert. The topic are described in a very appealing manner, but this book is useful also if you don't want to be a 007 but if you need to work with audio and video on your raspeberry Pi.
The book could also be used as a reference if you are a raspeberry pi dummy and you want learn and understand how to play with this fantastic piece of hardware.
