I am not yet through this book but from what I have seen so far this book is one of a kind. The examples are well-written and advanced Java examples that are a joy to read (you can actually learn something about Java from reading these examples!). I used to have the old 1st edition (which used C), but this one is so much better. If there's one book about compiler writing (and debugger writing and so on) you MUST have, this is it! This book is, as it says, not a book about theory, but a practical, down-to-earth book about making amazing software with the gentle help of an amazing instructor.

This book is amazing! The compiler in the book uses similar techniques used to build 'Clang' a production compiler . A word of warning though. If you're expecting this book to be a one-stop shop for learning compilers think again there is no book that could satisfy that requirement (not in one volume at least)There is just too much theory to cover (Formal Systems) . I bought this book after taking a course in compilers and reading the 'Dragon book' ie. after building a solid theoretical foundation, to get a practical understanding of compilers and this book delivers.

The concepts are not very well explainned, its just a book dedicated to the source code, and the source code is difficult to implement.
