Don't even think about ARM system-level programming without a copy of this book. This book is possibly the most precise reference manual in my technical library - first the microprocessor core itself (including details of the execution pipeline) is discussed and then each instruction - ARM and THUMB - is described in detail with psuedocode.
This isn't a textbook - it's not going to "teach you to write ARM" but if you're a software professional who has already mastered the concepts of RISC programming then this book is exactly what you need.
Incidentally, you can download an electronic copy (one page at a time) from the ARM website. I'm a bit Old School and like paper on my desk!

3 Reasons to buy in spite of the free ARM PDFs 29 April 2003
By Mr. Chris - Published on
Most everything here is in ARM's free databook PDFs. So why buy it? (1) It is cheaper than printing those huge PDFs. (2) It is easier to read. (3) It gives some history and tips that are difficult to find in the PDFs, but help us all write better code.
One complaint: poor binding. Manuals should be bound so they lay flat on a desk and stay open to the page being referenced. The fact that my cheif complaint has nothing to do with the content says volumes about this book.
Good buy.

Great Reference Manual 28 Aug. 2001
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Covers everything you might need to know about ARM assembly language programming. It has three sections: A. CPU Architecture - ARM instruction set (regular and Thumb) - ARM addressing modes - Examples B. Memory and System Architecture -System Control Coprocessor, MMU, Protection Unit, Caches and Write Buffers C. Vector Floating Point Architecture - Formats, instructions and addressing modes For a more broad and general introduction into ARM Furber's book is excellent and should be purchased first(unless you are just need a reference manual).

Great Reference, but way to general and out of date 13 May 2007
By P. Wilson - Published on
Verified Purchase
THis was one of the more expensive books I bought for info on the ARM architectures, but I'm disappointed, the book covers just the core ARM architecture and is a few years out of date now too. Its a tough book to write, no doubt, there are so many variations on ARM that its unrealistic to expect them all to be coevered, but I'd like to have seen some more specifics. Most ARM imlementations by the multiple vendors ot there put in a bunch of peripherals, I'd like to have seen some attemtp to address those features better.

If you wanted a detailed ARM core reference, it might be the book for you, but bear in mind it doesn;t addres the newer products...

Key ARM reference 5 April 2008
By Stephane - Published on
This is an architectural reference; it covers the instruction set, exceptions, etc. For that purpose, this is the best book I believe.

This is not the technical reference manual; it will not cover the ICE, instruction timings of a given implementation (say, the ARM7TDMI), coprocessors that might be present, etc. For that, the TRM for a part is best; the TRM will in turn not cover architectural issues, such as the instruction set.

It also is a bit dated, not covering the newer Cortex chips (i.e. Thumb2).
Excellent Product, Excellent Service. 28 Oct. 2007
By Peter Craven - Published on
This is the introductory text that I am using for ARM. Although makes it a bit more difficult to start with such a Reference because often lose "Big Picture" saves buying simpler introductions that can usually be found on internet.

Excellent condition. Quick service.
