The majority of this book is composed of examples for tasks commonly involved in embedded programming. The feeling I get reading over them is that they were translated from a similar book for a different processor. This section of the book wasn't very useful for me, since the book adheres to a non-relocatable standard for programs but I am targeting a platform where position-independent code is important.The instruction set reference in the back of the book is good. It has diagrams for effective address calculation that are at times better than Motorola's official documentation. Both are on my frequent reference shelf.
