All Books


This is a list of all books that I have started, or that I have done significant work on. The letters next to the title of a book are the status codes that show what state the book is in. A description of the book will be shown below the title to elaborate these codes. All books are to be considered a work-in-progress.

Conversion went well, but formatting looks shabby. Improve formatting, add notes and sidebars, Improve aesthetics all the way around. Add a "Resources" and "Licensing" page, as needed. Provide links to related books. Make sure the book is well-categorized.

Did a read-through today. Book is a lousy stub but has attracted a scant few contributions from other contributors. Desperately needs some images to illustrate some of it's concepts, and has a lot of empty pages and empty headings, especially in later sections/chapters.

Several pages are stubbish, and have no headers structure. Lots of equations but not a lot of explanation and no examples. A few redlinks in later parts of the TOC, and a definite need for massive expansion in later chapters.

Book is a stub with very little content and an incomplete TOC. What this book needs most is a full-time author to adopt it, because it's not far enough along yet for occasional contributors to be able to latch onto it. Needs everything.

Poor quality mishmash of various topics. Many pages are stubs. TOC is inconsistent with subpage naming. Risks becoming an encyclopedia of hardware/software configurations. Needs more examples, more pictures, more explanations. Strongly consider and maybe start planning breaking this book into smaller, more focused volumes: RTOS, C + Assembly interaction, Embedded hardware programming, Real-Time Software, etc. Might just be better off this way.
