On figure 2.3, we have that about the printing of datasheets: "to create two-side documents, first print the back side in reverse order, put the pages back into the printer, and print the front side in ascending order." Are you kidding with me, author?
On the book, we have:
*useless block diagrams
*no logical sequence. Low-end, mid-range and PIC18 are all treated simultaneously. Not very pedagogical.
*evasive comments about personal experiences and 8051 microcontrollers approach ( I can do it but it is very difficult to you...)
*nothing about USB. It is very disappointing for a book that deals with PIC18 family.
In general, the book is not a new edition:
On Figure 14.4 there is a printscreen of one very old MPLAB edition. That chapter about debug is very outdated and useless.
On page 538, we have it: " You might be a bit suspicious of an RTOS after what I've just written. After all, you probably have a PC running Windows/95 or Windows/NT."
Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers: Principles and Applications
If you want to learn about PIC microcontrollers and are not disinclined to learn Assembly or C programming, this is a very good book. If you want to learn BASIC programming of PIC's, I do not recommend this book.
