"…Catsoulis writes about a difficult topic clearly…If you have ever considered building that network-connected toaster or Web-based wine-cellar temperature sensor, this is the book for you. Even if you won’t be designing your own circuit boards, you will certainly understand what is involved in any kit or prebuilt design you may decide to use. "

"...appears in its second updated edition to include even more real-world and Linux examples, and is a recommended pick for programmers with a familiarity with C. It's been used as a college textbook and covers everything from basic debugging skills to determining the applications and needs of real-time projects. In updating details and clarifying routines, the 2nd edition of Programming Embedded Systems should be considered both a classroom and lending collection standard."

"Pick up this book, step through its exercises in a methodical way, and you'll have, along with several working 'blinking-light' programs, a good sense for how work gets done in the embedded world. Authors Barr and Massa are careful to write explicit tutorials to introduce concepts like the embedded-system development cycle, device driver responsibilities, and real-time scheduling. At the same time, their own backgrounds are broad enough that they show how specific examples and solutions fit in broader context. "
