Good book for the novice. Also covers OS's in small systems.


I just got my hands on a copy of the book yesterday and after spending several hours browsing it, I am very pleased with the purchase. I've been programming embedded systems in C for well over 15 years now but I'm always looking for new & better ways to implement systems. Most of what I've found in the book so far is a helpful encapsulation of the information I've learned and gathered over the years. One of the roles I have is to "bring along" young engineers. Now I have a book to which I can point and say "Read this, then let's discuss it". The sections discussing the use of an OS in small systems are particularly informative to even the experienced programmer. -Bill Knight R O Software

A book written in french


If you want to confuse yourself in the text riddled with grammatical errors and typos. I didnt read this 1000 page book from the start to the end as I was irritated by trying to comprehend what the author wants to say. Mike, get a reviewer. Kudos on your design ideas though.

Comprehensive coverage and nice drawings.


This book seems like a very comprehensive book compressed into a manageable number of pages. I haven't delved too deeply into, but have already found it useful in solving a problem I was having getting WinXP/Linux to dual-boot. The edition I bought features tabbed pages, so finding a particular area of interest is easy. The writing style is inviting, although I did find some of the digressions, like the section entitled "System Administrator Syndrome", comical but unnecessary. This book was the most appealing of the books I thumbed through on the shelf at my local Barnes and Noble and I found helpful information in the first 20 pages. The pencil drawings are also very amusing. 5 stars!
