Skip it if you are a beginner
I am new to the Raspberry and to working on computers. I know how to use Word and Excel and the like and thought it would be fun to learn about Rasberry Pi and run some games on RetroPie. When I got the RetroPie configuration screen in front of me I realized I was going to need some help so I bought this book. This book assumes you have more than a basic knowledge of computers. So if you are like me and the phrase “make sure the USB device is formatted for FAT32” doesn’t really mean anything to you then skip this book.
