"Editors Oshana and Kraeling, with a combined experience of over 50 years in embedded software and an array of authors with backgrounds in various aspects of hardware and software design both in industry and academia rely on a variety of case studies and software code examples to provide exhaustive coverage of the field of software engineering for embedded systems. There is an interleaved two-dimensional conceptual framework to the work that divides the topics into three vertical and five horizontal layers."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
