About the Author
Karim Yaghmour is the founder and president of Opersys, a company providing expertise and courses on the use of open source and free software in embedded systems, and Kryptiva, a a provider of email security services. Being himself an active member of the open source and free software community, Karim has firmly established Opersys's services around the core values of knowledge sharing and technical quality promoted by this community. As part of his community involvement, Karim is the maintainer of the Linux Trace Toolkit and the author of a series of white-papers that led to the implementation of the Adeos nanokernel, which allows multiple operating systems to exist side-by-side.
Karim's quest for understanding how things work started at a veryyoung age when he took it upon himself to break open all the radiosand cassette players he could lay his hands on in order to "fix"them. Very early, he developed a keen interest in operating systeminternals and embedded systems. He now holds a B.Eng. and anM.A.Sc. from the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. While everyonewas hacking away at Linux, Karim even took a detour to write his owndistributed micro-kernel in order to get to the bottom of operatingsystem design and implementation. When not working on software, Karimindulges in his passion for history, philosophy, sociology, andhumanities in general. He's especially addicted to essays and novelsby Umberto Eco and Gerald Messadie.
Jonathan Masters works on the Linux kernel for Red Hat.

Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone looking to get into embedded Linux systems, or Android, because you need to be able to boot Linux on your embedded device to port over Android.
I cannot wait for the author to come out with his next book on building embedded Android systems. I put it in my cart around October. Maybe it will come out soon......
The front page says "Concepts, Techniques, TRICKS and traps. I don't feel this was accomplished. I was dissatisfied with the book. It was more of a documentary of a special software project that the author was involved in and will be of limited value to most embedded users.
