Title: An Embedded Software Primer
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: David E. Simon
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good overview


This book is very good overview of the process of embedded software design. Experts in embedded software design will probably not get much out of this book as he doesn't go into much detail on the individual topics he covers. However, the scope of this book is intended for those who are looking for a general overview of embedded systems so criticism is not really warrented IMO. Topics covered include RTOS, memory management, message management and multi-tasking system development. Anyone looking to get started on learning the principles of embedded software development should find this book worth a look.

Title: Excel 2002 Power Programming with VBA
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: John Walkenbach
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Well organized, clear writing; good investment


I have found this book very useful. It is not for raw beginners, you should have at least dabbled in Visual Basic. The author gently encourages the reader to develop habits of documentation, formatting code with indents etc.
He provides helpful overviews of objects, properties, methods. There are many examples, most are snippets to illustrate key points.
Well organized, attractive page layouts, good index. CD with VBA examples (and more) adds much value.

Excellent walkthrough of the basics


This is a fine walkthrough of the basics of audio playback and production. It covers the different audio formats, the mechanics of audio playback and recording and does it with effective use of graphics and some fine writing. Unfortunately it stops just short of podcasting, which is where I think a number of readers will be looking for.

There is some fine coverage of the legal issues involved on both the production and the consumption side of the fence. I'm pleased with this book. It's an easy and informative read.

Pretty Good Book.


I really felt this book a good one. Pretty interesting too by using example like Titan Ship Booking he really makes it simple to understand too. Also the author participates in many open source projects too, one which i recently came to know is the EJBoss. He is indeed a very good author.
