This book is NOT that. This book documents the effort involved in creating Windows CE, and why choices were made over others. It does talk about some details of the OS, but brushes over them.
In summary, this is a good book to teach you who wrote what part of Windows CE, and how it was done, and why things were done the way they were. This is NOT the book to order to learn how to program in Windows CE or find out the details of porting Windows CE to a new hardware platform or any of these technical details.
As of the time of this writing I haven't seen a book that details the build process. The only option at this point is to purchase the Microsoft Platform Builder for Windows CE 2.11.
However, if you are purely interest in win CE for your programming need, you may find the way, the book was written is disorganized and not an efficient way to find answer.
