An Excellent Book for Beginners to Moderate Skill
I have used Labview programming for 4-5 years in my work and I am self taught using books similar to this - plus I bought this book.
Labview is not simple. It appears simple but in fact it used to be shipped from NI with four or five thick manuals. Furthermore skipping some information can be fatal and one can waste days - I know I have done that especially setting up interface analog boards and similar. In recent years the base program has come with less and less written documentation as the newer versions have evolved.
Since the base Labview package is about $900. this is a good place to start since it has a demo CD that you can use for a month. It is very clear and well written but probably a bit short. It is user friendly so you can keep it within reach and look at it from time to time.
It is a nice book and not too expensive

Good Book and time consuming
This is a good book if you are looking for an intro to Labview and you have no programming skills. I am an old fart programmer. I think most of what is published in this book could have been said 150 pages rather than 600 pages. I bought the book to get up to speed quickly. It helped, but was slow going. As for criticism, this book often omitted or mislabeled menu navigation steps during the tutorials. Other than that, it is a very good book. I learned Labview ! thanks Jeffrey

Readable, Practical, and even Fun
J. Travis' new edition of LabVIEW for Everyone is excellent both as a "how to" and as a resource. Even if a user doesn't have time to read the whole book, just reading the beginning and end of the chapters provides immediately applicable ideas for working with the latest release of LabVIEW.
Travis' style is simple and straightforward. His examples are practical, and his exercises particularly beneficial to novice users. His occasional spouts of humor keep the reading from being dry.
I highly recommend this book for anyone involved in programming with LabVIEW.
