About the Author
Jonathan Valvano has been teaching microcontrollers and embedded systems at the University of Texas at Austin for 35 years. He has written eight college textbooks. His textbooks on have been widely used around the world, with a total sales of over 20,000 books. He earned his BS and MS from MIT in 1977 in the fields of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. In 1981, he received his PhD from Harvard-MIT in the field of biomedical engineering. He has over 100 journal papers, 9 book chapters and 10 patents in the medical device research area. He is a cofounder of a successful medical device company, specializing in miniature and low-power cardiac measurements. The reason he has received numerous teaching awards at the University of Texas is because he and his students share a common interest at the very core of the education process: the students' own success. Together with Professor Yerraballi he has produced two widely successful MOOCs on edX. "It is difficult to find a professor that tries harder to educate and inspire his students than Professor Valvano" - Robin Tsang. Valvano lives by this motto, “There are three steps to immortality: acknowledge your limitations, ask for forgiveness, and then do something special today to make the world a better place.”

Good reference book, but does does not give the entire picture if you are just getting started. This is not an ease microcontroller family to learn, but well worth your effort and time. Use the TI LaunchPad TM4C123G LaunchPad.
However, also I recommend the following documents and website on your journey to learn the ARM Cortex_M series of microcontorllers.
1. Install and learn to use Code Composer Studio v.6 (CCS v.6.x) (x = its latest version)
2. Join TI's e2e community and related forum: e2e (dot) ti (dot) com
4. TivaWare Peripheral Driver Library_SW-TM4C-DRL-UG-220.127.116.11_Revised March 2016_spmu298d

Assuming that you have made the decision to purchase, at least get bound copy.
The content of the book is not bad. I got through three first 3 chapters and hated it because I couldn't understand what was going on, then I picked up the bound copy and figured out why. The pages are really wide so they don't fit in a kindle page correctly and the examples are all smooshed together making the examples very discontinuous.
After figuring this out purchasing the bound copy, the content is only so so. It doesn't show examples from start for finish, it only seams to show examples bits of assembly code. If you have written assembly before, then I sure it would be fine because you would understand how to implement the code. However, it does show the bits of code next to a C version of the code which helps.
*** Update *** This book was actually written to compliment the authors class so if you look, you can find their website which does have a lot of useful material. The additional material is organized well and tell which chapters in the book it's complimenting.
