5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intro to Assembly Language, 17 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Programming from the Ground Up (Paperback)
This book is a good book if your looking for an introduction to assembly language, specifically x86 on linux. The author basically starts each chapter with a program demonstrating some new concept (eg functions) and proceeds to disect it over the course of the chapter so the reader is left with a good understanding of it. Also there are exercises at the end of each chapter which help to reinforce what has been learned.
Im not sure if this book is really suitable for someone who has no programming experience though. I don't think assembly language is the place to start if your just learning how to program, i would recommend something like python maybe. But for some one who already knows how to program in a language this is a good primer to assembly language on linux.
