Jonathan Valvano has been teaching microcontrollers and embedded systems at the University of Texas at Austin for 35 years. He has written seven college textbooks. His first three textbooks on the Freescale 9S12 have been widely used around the world. He earned his BS and MS from MIT in 1977 in the fields of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. In 1981, he received his PhD from Harvard-MIT in the field of biomedical engineering. He has over 100 journal papers, 9 book chapters and 10 patents in the medical device research area. He is a cofounder of a successful medical device company, specializing in miniature and low-power cardiac measurements. The reason he has received numerous teaching awards at the University of Texas is because he and his students share a common interest at the very core of the education process: the students’ own success. “It is difficult to find a professor that tries harder to educate and inspire his students than Professor Valvano” – Robin Tsang.

I recently started work as an Embedded Software Engineer, and after a lifetime of using Intel processors I found Valvano's books on the Cortex M microcontrollers refreshingly clear, amusing and informative; well written, with plenty of examples of different manufacturer's implementations of the core; well illustrated and with plenty of "have you understood what I told you" exercises.
All in all, a highly commendable set of books.
