One chapter in particular, "Manual Override", briefly and concisely describes the fundamentals that design engineers adhere to when laying out a board. Coming from a design background myself, I really appreciated his explanations of layout rules and the constraints that design engineers are faced with. The chapter practically describes my design experience with mixed signal PCBs and it was spot on! I credit my previous design experience with my ability to RE PCBs. I believe that hardware/embedded reverse engineers that don't come from a design background should read this section carefully. It should provide some valuable insight to find interesting test points, debug interfaces, interactions and relationships between digital and analog signals. Also in the book is a very useful chapter dedicated to JTAG. There are chapters dedicated to high end tools, that I didn't even know that existed! I'm still trying to get over the chapter on ScanCAD and how that works. The resources section of the book has some great references and DIY ideas/projects. The PCB-RE equipment and vendors almost reads like a wishlist to me...
Overall, I found this book to be super useful and it will probably be on my bench more than on a bookshelf. If you are doing this kind of work on a daily basis, like me, you are definitely going to be writing notes, marking up the book, and putting in book marks everywhere. I think students, enthusiasts, and engineers looking for a career change will definitely take away something from this book.
