Excellent companion to the PC parallel port.
Another excellent book form Jan Axelson. Superbly written. Easy to understand lucid and still technically a completely reliable reference. Once the basics have been mastered one can develop a variety of applications (particularly control circuits). Equally useful for beginners, students and professionals. Good support material provided on auther's web-site. This book makes a good companion of the similar book on Parallel port interface by the same auther. Students looking for good projects will find this book extremely useful. Even self study is possible for a newcomer.

El equilibrio entre hardware&software
El libro justo para quien sabe lo que quiere. Explicaciones claras y planteo de problemas claves que se presentan a la hora de comenzar un proyecto. Realmente excelente.

A good source of info, but not for the beginner
This book is very complete indeed, but it assumes you already know a fair bit about electronic circuitry. As a computer programmer with little electronics experience, I first had to read up on basic electronics. Also, some sections could have been easier to understand if there was more supporting details or examples. However, the book did answer most of my questions about the serail port and I was able to complete my programming project on time. I would rate this book a 3.5 to 4.0
