I would. I've picked up an issue for plane flights the past few years and just got a subscription over Christmas. In almost every issue there's been something I wanted to build. I'm assuming when you mean "beginner side" you're talking about electronics--many of the projects aren't electronics and even the ones that are generally work for beginners.
Electronics-wise, if you can solder (which there are great videos on the Internet to teach you) a lot of these projects you can almost put together without understanding everything int he circuit. You just might have issues troubleshooting without a multimeter and patience (another ~$20 item with videos on the Internet).
I had an Electronics for Dummies I passed over to my girlfriend to get the basics when she wanted to learn. After a few weeks of reading I gave her the Make: Electronics book instead (I forgot I had it). She liked it /way/ better because it explained basic things she just had trouble grasping in just the first few pages. So if you're looking to learn electronics, that's where I suggest starting.
