I was pretty excited about getting this book to review. I am by no means a Linux expert or an Embedded Systems expert. So to say this book was a tad over my head...well, it was. Plain and simple. This book is not, I repeat not, for the weekend warrior. You really should know you stuff about Linux and Embedded Systems before breaking into this book. This is not a beginners guide. This book is for people familiar with the Linux Kernel and Embedded Systems that wants to know the best ways to create Embedded Systems with the Linux Kernel.
This book does a really good job of discussing tools of the trade to get started but lacks a little bit on explanations. What I didn't like about this book was the lack of solid concrete examples. I am a big fan of books that provide a complete walk thru which this book fails to do so.
Overall, very technical, very to the point. But not very explanatory with it's concepts.
