Having worked in the semiconductors industry for a few years, I keep an eye on new publications on relevant subjects.

My overall feedback about this book is very positive - though I have to mention that I am not a newbie on the subject.
ARM is my main line of work and I am also certified as an AAE [...] The book covers some advanced subjects very briefly early on and so it may not be the most suitable resource if you have little experience of system programming.

I picked this book because it looked like a well structured and up-to-date general overview of the ARM technology - for example it has a chapter dedicated to the ARM NEON IP which is an essential subject for doing DSP on ARM processors and which has seen an increasing importance in the past few years.

The chapters are fairly complete in terms of covering different subjects but they also do have some room for including some more recent works - for example there is mention of the ARMv8 architecture but not as much as I would have liked to see, or in the case of the chapter on NEON, there is no mention of the NE10 open source library.

The first negative point for the book would be the that there are noticeable spelling or wording errors throughout the book. In addition, some of the generalised statements which were indeed correct before the introduction of the ARMv8 architecture are no longer correct - for example some of the features that the author has claimed to be optional ARM core features are no longer optional and are mandatory in the ARMv8 architecture.

I would recommend the book to other relatively experienced professionals working in the software or hardware industry - this is a good overview - and so 4/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Usefull from beginers to experienced professionals 18 April 2014
By Juan Solsona - Published on
This book is a valuable tool for all the developers, from professionals that wants to see how others do common assembler tasks to newcomers that starts in the world of the systems, and assembly programming.

Very easy to read, and filled with samples that shows exactly the context of each chapter.

Highly recommendable.

Once I learned to keep reading when an acronym that I did not understand popped up (It was usually explained not too far further), this book was a great resource and helped a lot.

Covers the right amount of background, toolchains, assembly and C.
