A Start

John's book is welcome first. I do agree it is very x86 centered but that is better than no books at all on the subject. Maybe we can encourage John to write a followup book with examples based on a real embedded platform.I found the book was inspiring and useful to someone like myself who makes a living from designing embedded hardware and systems.That does not mean that it answered all my questions but it sure wet my appetite. John please do a follow up book that uses real hardware.

Good start for embedded linux world

This was the only book available on embeeded linux in the market. Linux is making roads in embedded systems. But there is very little information available on the subject. This book gives a basic foundation for system engineers who wants to use linux in their embedded projects. The books explains why linux is more pertinent for embedded projects; the advantages/disadvantages of using linux in embedded systems; how to build a smalles possible linux system; choosing the right hardware for embedded linux; Embedded linux tool kits available in the market; how to boot embedded linux from flash memory; Debugging embedding linux. There is a chapter on the success stories of embedded linux (TIVO, Axis Network camera). Embedded linux resources are given in an appendix. The coverage is not exhaustive but presentation of the material is good; John has done a good job.
