Rei Vilo, an Energia Library developer, posted a review of the Getting Started with the MSP430 Launchpad. If you are planning to dive into the world of embedded systems, the book is a good choice as it leads the reader through beginner concepts using the MSP430 Launchpad as a platform and Energia( an Arduino fork for the MSP430 ) as the programming software.
