“The book includes new chapters on simplicity, energy awareness, and the Internet, and, more importantly, some of the original chapters have been substantially revised. The book was designed to be a textbook. Its audience includes graduate and senior-level undergraduate students in real-time systems courses, as well as practitioners. … Overall, this is a very good book.” (Janusz Zalewski, ACM Computing Reviews, January, 2012)
