As a regular viewer of the Ben Heck show there isn't much new hear, but it was a fun read. It has some inspiring ideas inside.

This book surpassed my expectations. If you are a tinkerer this book will be great for you...if you also like retro-gaming, this book becomes a must have. He is so thorough in his descriptions of the projects, that even if you aren't already handy with electronics you will have no problem completing these projects. I also liked the fact that for each project he has two versions: one full-scale project; and one that can be accomplished without any expensive tools. Highly recommended!

I've been following Ben for almost 2 years now since I found his website for the original PSp (PlayStation Portable). The humor on his site is great and he did an excellent job of carrying over his writing style for the new book. It's a good light read, and doesn't require a whole lot of previous knowledge. Specifically in the department of understanding electronics. I can personally recommend this book if you love tinkering with electronics or if you actually plan on building one of these portables, it's clear and the pictures corresponded amazingly well to the descriptions. Great Book, Great Work.

this isnt just some book that puts all the weight on your shoulders to make sense of it and track down hard to find parts and make this some kind of impossible task. its the real deal!! you really can do this yourself with only basic electronics skill. the best skill probably is a love of video games, which will pretty easily overcome any challenges for technical expertise you might not have...tho little of that is necessary anyways. stop by his web site asap!!! the real thing!

This book has a lot of great information. It's easy to understand and gives good cookbook recipes for different types of handhelds. It's mostly geared toward novices, which I don't think is a negative. It has a very conversational style and feels like Ben Heckendorn is there coaching you through the process.

The big complaint I have is that the book only addresses one specific version of each game console. For example Ben only uses the SNES mini and says little about the original SNES. He only uses the toaster style NES for his projects and says nothing about the later top-loading machine (which I have). It would be nice to have more/some discussion on the differences in layout between the various console versions and how they impact potential use in portables.

That complaint aside this is a good primer to get you on your way to chopping and soldering on your game system. If you have any interest in turning an old console into a portable system this book is where I'd start. Also Ben has a website with forums for folks that do this kind of thing which is handy as well.
