A common joke:

The 3 most dangerous things against your completing your project:

1. A Programmer with a soldering iron.
2. A Manager who programs.
3. A User with ideas.

Ok, I'm only talking about #1. Most software guys know how to do two things: drink coffee and blame the hardware guy. But if you're one of those special souls that wants to actually learn but doesn't want to feel like you're starting college all over again... this is the book for you.

this book turned out to be just the sort of introduction I thought it would be, and what it advertised - enough to get you interested & started. I freaked out a bit when they started discussing 68000 chips for embedded systems. I wonderfully used 68000 chips for full fledged, advanced desktop computers.

Like all O'Reilly books, of course, this one assumes a good bit of agile intelligence of its reader.

I have this not so secret wish to be an embedded systems developer. I also like to know what's going on inside the devices I'm developing for. This book gave me a lot of insight into that and made me at least believe that if I put the effort into it, I could probably design a simple embedded device. It's also full of tips that would likely be useful to any electronics hobbiest.

Good book for a refresher in embedded, someone operating at a higher level, not the true hands on person, they would need a deeper/more detailed book but the program/project manager this is ideal.
