Compilers: Principles, Techniques and Tools, is known to professors, students, and developers worldwide as the "Dragon Book," . Every chapter has been revised to reflect developments in software engineering, programming languages, and computer architecture that have occurred since 1986, when the last edition published. The authors, recognising that few readers will ever go on to construct a compiler, retain their focus on the broader set of problems faced in software design and software development.

I found it easy to read and understand. I feel that this book was written by highly professional community that also understands of how to deliver content to its reader, I mean all is taken into the count in terms of how to make complicated content highly efficient in terms of explanation to the end-user.
I came across many books but this one is a special one that might excel your vision of how the software is interacting with hardware.
Must have book if you are a software engineer!
The back of this Indian edition is even more ominous where it says "For these special editions, the editorial team at Pearson has collaborated with educators across the world to address a wide range of subjects and requirements, equipping students with the best possible learning tools" (MH so far so good). It continues ....
"This international edition preserves the cutting-edge approach and pedagogy of the original, BUT MAY ALSO FEATURE ALTERATIONS, CUSTOMIZATION AND ADAPTATIONS FROM THE UNITED STATES VERSION" (Caps MH).
This is somewhat concerning, as there is no indication within the book what has been changed, altered or customised!
So what is the actual condition of the the book itself.
Well the binding is OK, but looks a little flimsy, however inside the type quality is not very good, with frequent smudges and a very faint text. The paper quality is not very good either and to be honest the book does not look like it will last very long, without falling apart.
Unfortunately having never had an opportunity to read the original, I don't know how close this edition is. Also some readers have reported on the reviews below, that some of the algorithms are wrong. Again I don't know the validity of these statements. But I will raise this with Amazon in the morning.
So if you are going to buy this book from the sellers, then be aware that almost all of them are from India and therefore it is highly likely that you will receive an edition that is the same as my one.
In fairness these may be perfectly good copies of the original, but we should be made aware before we purchase them that these are Indian editions and that the quality might not be up to what we are normally used to, and even more importantly, there may be some additions, alterations or customisations to the test.
LET THE BUYER BEWARE.
However the layout does not do it justice. The book is clearly written TeX but the table of contents and the index have been replaced with some other ugly layout. Additionally, the TeX parts have huge margins but the index does not. It's a shame because it's such a great book.
And why is there no dragon on the cover?
