It's a very good introductory book. It has a good organization of topics and brings a lot of references for further reading. There are few things I dislike and hope that may be fixed in future editions. There are examples that don't work at first because some includes are missing such as the parport.c example that I had to add a #include. Some other examples depend on tasks that might be difficult to achieve like running a kernel 2.6 on Red Hat 9.0 (I had to read a lot of forums to execute this task properly). The price is high for a book that has less than 400 pages.
I can not say that it's the best book I have ever read but I think it's simple to read.A lot of pictures make the steps easy to follow, the CD is also helpful. Furthermore, the develop is done on an old PC.This make the starting point easy and cheap but at the same time make also the limitation of the book.Some important topics are not discussed due to the development board.As first reading, I can recommend it but you need a second reading.As second reading I would recommend "Building Embedded Linux Systems"
The author uses old technology for a book published in 2006. He's too focused on his project and neglects to explain the over all picture. I didn't get much out of it.
