About the Author
Jonathan Valvano has been teaching microcontrollers and embedded systems at the University of Texas at Austin for 35 years. He has written eight college textbooks. His textbooks on have been widely used around the world, with a total sales of over 20,000 books. 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. Together with Professor Yerraballi he has produced two widely successful MOOCs on edX. "It is difficult to find a professor that tries harder to educate and inspire his students than Professor Valvano" - Robin Tsang. Valvano lives by this motto, “There are three steps to immortality: acknowledge your limitations, ask for forgiveness, and then do something special today to make the world a better place.”

Cons first since I am giving only three stars (changed it to 4 since the author really makes an incredible effort to produce a ton of material):
1. It is directed towards RTOS. However the RTOS focus is rather lacking.
2. All RTOS concepts are explained theoretically. However, there are almost no real complete examples developed.
3. The websites (s) supporting the book also don't contain a lot of RTOS support.
Recommendation on a new version:
Ditch many of the chapters on the ARM concepts. They are all important, but they are already covered in great length in the first two books. I don't see the need to re explain NVIC, UART, USB, GPIO to the great length it is detailed. This is actually pretty good data with many developed projects, and it would be fine to have this if the RTOS focus was more, say at least 3 more chapters detailing an example with tasks, semaphores, you would have to pick a particular RTOS but I think that would be ok, they are all a bit similar. Since RTOS is not fully developed then all the "other" good data seemed to pad the book.
There is a ton of data on everything about the cortex M MCU. I mean a ton of data and fully developed projects for all. You name it, and there is a fully developed project with detailed explanations....
