"With the list of electronics growing every day, so does the need for programmers who can write software for embedded systems. This book was written for two types of readers, beginning programmers interested in writing embedded software, and embedded systems programmers looking for a reference that explains key topicsaclear, concise steps and usable code examples, includes coding tips and warnings." --fatbain.com editorial review

"The programming of embedded processors is an increasingly important skill. This easy-to-read book starts at the beginning (assuming only a knowledge of C and C++) and leads the reader through the essentials of embedded systems programming, concentrating an areas common to all projects." --I&CS, Sept 1999

This lively and readable book is the perfect introduction for those venturing into embedded systems software development for the first time. It provides in one place all the important topics necessary to orient programmers to the embedded development process. --Lindsey Vereen, Editor-in-Chief, Embedded Systems Programming Journal

"I am a Computer Science major at the State University of New York College at Brockport. Last week, I purchased your book from amazon.com at a great savings. Once I started reading it, I found it hard to put down and read it cover-to-cover in two days. As a 'broke' student, I am eagerly awaiting my tax refund from Uncle Sam so I can afford to purchase a Target 188EB and continue my educational journey 'inside the box.' Thank you for a very stimulating and informative book. The bibliography was excellent too!" --John E. Erway II

"I just got my hands on a copy of your book yesterday and after spending a few 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 concise 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.' Thanks for taking the time to write it." --Bill Knight, R O Software

"Dear Mr. Barr, I'm really enjoying your book. After your post I went out and picked up the book. I've been interested in embedded systems design ever since I graduated from college. I was also very frustrated with the lack of info on this topic.

Thanks very much for writing your book!" -Bernie Elayda
