The AVR Microcontroller and Embedded Systems: Using Assembly and C
Prentice Hall, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 776 pages
The AVR Microcontroller and Embedded Systems: Using Assembly and C features a step-by-step approach in covering both Assembly and C language programming of the AVR family of Microcontrollers. It offers a systematic approach in programming and interfacing of the AVR with LCD, keyboard, ADC, DAC, Sensors, Serial Ports, Timers, DC and Stepper Motors, Opto-isolators, and RTC. Both Assembly and C languages are used in all the peripherals programming. In the first 6 chapters, Assembly language is used to cover the AVR architecture and starting with chapter 7, both Assembly and C languages are used to show the peripherals programming and interfacing.

Basically it explains from very bottom like what is micro-controller, how it works, how to code and how to implement it in real life. Loft of nice and clear examples or even tricks. Eventually it goes to very top, by ending with advanced techniques, standard conversion, different addressing modes, interrupts, ISP programming, etc...
For me it is hard to say to which reader this book dedicated. From one point of view, it says everything from very bottom. From another, for beginner it can be not really clear, what exactly means pin HIGH or LOW. Somewhere in the book it still says that it is 5 Volts and so on, but not in the first chapter like connect this or that and you'll get that.
I would say to read this book you need to have small practical basics. But pure beginners probably should give this book a try.
For me it was "All in one" book. You go from bottom to the most advanced top. I recommend it to anyone who is willing to understand what is micro-controller and how to work with advanced features.
ultimate book for micro-controller lovers
