I started my embedded programming with this book. While i do recommend 
it for a start, many macros, compiler instructions etc are different. I 
currently do not recollect the reasons for my struggle shifting from 
CodeVision to ImageCraft and now to GCC, but it was not easy. And do 
not get too used to the application builder and the built in functions 
that are not part of the standard C library. For one,  I remember 
having problem with LCD displays as CodeVision included convenient to 
use, LCD routines while the others did not.

I do recommend this book if you are new to AVR and C programming in 
general but suggest that you quickly move on to GCC (If it is what you 
want to use :-)) by reading the GCC manual and the AVR-libc manual as 

Welcome to the world of the AVR!
