It's important to note however that this book is pretty light on code etc. It covers concepts and uses fairly liberal examples rather than the exact numbers and code that you will tend to see in other embedded books.
In conclusion, this is the kind of stuff that a good senior engineering mentor would share and therefore is recommended for anybody who's only been through development of a system once or twice. I also recommend it for those wanting to get into designing things for a hobby as this is something that the author is passionate about (evident from her podcast at "embedded.fm") although you'll need to refer to the internet for tutorial style help.
