Notes on section 1.4.2:

This is the first example, and I feel it is important that beginners do not get confused in terms:
"#2 Switch pin on and off" -> "#2 Switch LED on" (sound a bit strange for me to "switch" a pin)

"switches pin 13 on or HIGH or LOW" -> "sets pin 13 to HIGH or LOW"

(reference http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/digitalWrite)


As seen in other books, references to code are formatted differently also in sentences to avoid confusing meaning:
"letters digitalwrite is not the same to Arduino as digitalWrite" -> "letters <codeFormat>digitalwrite</codeFormat> is not the same to Arduino as <codeFormat>digitalWrite</codeFormat>".


Notes on section 1.4.3:

"You can either just connect the Arduino to your computer via the USB cable or add an LED
between pin 13 and gnd.": remove the USB-setup. It is duplicated in the next section.


In overall, I find the book understandable and well structured.
Keep up the good work!


Regards,
Sakke
