Easily one of my best 5 books on C. The title is slightly misleading; it's true that the author discusses some aspects of embedded development, but the lessons learned in this book are far more applicable than just the embedded world.

Awesome read, a real eye-opener for me and probably one of the best introductions to the subject. I really like how James Grenning sticks with the TDD cycle. It feels weird at first but the implications on your code design become obvious and the reader is amply rewarded in the later chapters. I'd love to know the author's opinion on other test frameworks like google test, though.
