I figure i'll be a bit more helpful than the smartass above...
Go to www.embedded.com and look up the Embedded Systems Programming
Magazine. Get the CD of past issues and look at web archives. The
contents in the CD will give a lot of useful techniques in embedded
and firmware programming than any single book would.

I think your advice was the most helpful. I will see if any local
library carries the firmware demystified book by Ed Sutter.

That's an OK book for people looking at high-end (16/32-bit, with flash
filesystems and networking) micros. It's less good for people dealing with
small single-chip systems - but Sutter's writing style is pretty clear,
the code examples are OK and the CD with a load of GCC ports is useful.
If you get hold of Sutter's "Micro Monitor" package (which the book
describes) there is a lot of good source code to read, too.

Yes, but which was the most accurate :-)

http://www.accu.org for the book reviews. (of over 3000 books) the ACCU
does not sell books. They just review them for their membership. Though
they also put them on line as well.

Please be more specific. Are you looking for books about best
practices in embedded programming, or books that will teach you how to
develop for some specific product?

"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", purely because it's the best book on
anything and everything, ever.

It's not hardcore, but you'd have to read the book...

together  with embedded.com check michael Barr's 'Programming
Embedded in C and C++'
there is another one called 'firmware demystified'' but I haven't
check it so you'll have to google around or check amazon reviews about
it.

There is a review of  it on

www.accu.org

The ACCU has reviews of over 3000 sw/computing books. These are reviews
by named, working engineers who are part of the accu review team.  The
accu does this as a service to it's members as it does not sell books.

The reviews on Amazon are notoriously unreliable. I once got a (miss-
directed) email from an author who was a lecturer telling his class of
50 to do favourable reviews of his book to boost its ratings in Amazon.
