Product Description

Synopsis

This work presents assembly language as a vehicle for a practical introduction to computer architecture and operating systems for readers with a basic knowledge of PASCAL or C. The guide explores iAPX assembly language, machine-level aspects of procedures in high-level languages, an overview of I/O ports and device structure and memory management issues.

Format: Hardcover
This textbook has the burden of being both a reference and a tutorial for 8088 or 8086 assembly programming. This is too heavy of an expectation for the book as it has trouble doing either well.
The author attempts to speak to casual and advanced programmers. This proves to be impossible as the author gets into a level of detail that will only please the advanced programmer but alienate the casual newbie.
I thought there should be more revisions to keep up with the current generations assembly language. The book focuses on 8088, 8086 when we are on the cusp of "80786" with the Pentium II Xeon.
Assuming the author is waiting to write a Merced assembly language book, he might be ahead of the technology instead of behind.
I fail to see how I can get a job by reading this book.

Excellent 30 Nov 2003
By Arek Firman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was an excellent book. It told me everything I needed to know on the subject.
The author presented the subject in a clear, detailed, and easy to approach manor. Explainations are indepth and very engaging. The author stays with you every step of the way. It's like having a little man inside your book helping you along. You can't help but feel like you've mastered this subject once you've finished reading this book.
I whole heartidly recommend this book to anyone who is SERIOUS about learning the interworkings of computer architecture.

lunix super cluster 30 Nov 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love this book. After reading it, I became a proficient assembly programmer and I am now able to write interweb applications and stack dequeing algorithms.
\\the fact of the matter is, no matter which code you assemble, it is the same for all cpu cores, and the hood remains the same, because the little man inside the computer is poly-lingual. ergo, vis a vis, sempre fi, snafu, concordintly,
i recomend that you guys write your own assembler after this, or better yet, a compiler. i hear gcc is the way to go
these jewish programming wizards sure are smart. huzzah
love,
A.G.
