FireWire System Architecture

Don Anderson (MindShare, Inc.): FireWire System Architecture. Addison-Wesley Professional, 2nd edition 1999,1144,0201485354,00.html

This is a must-have for all FireWire programmers. Alas its coverage of 1394a-2000 is not 100% complete and correct, but there is simply no other book about FireWire available. Read this before you delve into the IEEE specs.

Linux Device Drivers

Jonathan Corbet, Alessandro Rubini, Greg Kroah-Hartman: Linux Device Drivers. O'Reilly, 3rd edition 2005
