Way to basic!
It's just what it say "a primer". This book seems like it would be great for someone who has never programmed for embedded systems. However, if you have even a few months experiance under your belt, this book is a big waste of time. I purchased this book to use a quick refresh after being away from embedded programming for a few years. Sent it back after reading about 25% and skimming the rest.

Good book used in UW Extension course
A good book for introducing embedded systems concepts from a practical point of view. It is used, along with uCOS-II by Jean J Labrosse, in a one of a kind certificate program course at the
University of Washington Extension,
Embedded and Real-Time Systems Programming (...)

A must-read Embedded Software Primer
If you are going to buy only one book on Embedded Software Programming, this should be the one. The author introduces virtually everything an engineer needs to know about programming embedded systems. There are two chapters describing hardware stuff that is useful for the software engineer to know. There is a chapter on Interrupts. There are three chapters on programming in an RTOS environment. All of the chapters include coding examples on what to do, and also examples of code with bugs to watch out for. There is also a chapter on debugging techniques.
All of the other FIVE STAR reviews (and many of the FOUR STAR ones as well) contain more specific points which I won't repeat here.
However, I will echo what I said at the beginnning. If there is only one book you are going to buy about programming embedded systems, this should be the one.
· MicroC OS II: The Real Time Kernel (With CD-ROM)
· Designing Embedded Hardware
· Programming Embedded Systems in C and C ++
· Embedded Systems Design: An Introduction to Processes, Tools and Techniques
· Real-Time Concepts for Embedded Systems
