I received a very nice review from ECN Magazine - the reviewer couldn’t put the book down!

Lisa Simone has done a wonderful job explaining software debugging for embedded-system designers, and I highly recommend her book. Simone uses Hudson Technologies, a fictional company, and several main characters, Oscar, Josie, Li Mei, and Ravi to take readers through nine chapters of debugging dialog.

The dialog, which adds realism and some tension to the stories, shows what software developers go through in realistic situations, from debugging poorly written code to tracking down problems with interrupt service routines.”

Dialog is tough to create, but Simone writes well and quickly connects readers with the cast of characters at Hudson. The dialog makes the book easy to read. I decided to tackle a chapter before lunch and went through four chapters in one sitting. I haven’t had as much fun with a book about programming in a long time.
