I own the second edition of this great book and have absolutely no problems with the layout or size of the examples. It is true that some of them are shown as screenshots but many are not shown this way and in neither case is it difficult to read - at least not on my iPad or Nexus 7.
I would recommend this book as an intro to 64bit assembly programming. I'm about half way through and I'm not seeing much specific tie to Linux - nothing that would stop an interested Windows programmer. The writing style is good but you do really need to pay attention to the examples as not everything is explained in the text.
Everything you need to master 64bit intel based assembly language. Writing is clear, examples demonstrate what is being explained. The author uses his own ide for a lot of the coding, which is actually not too bad at all when you get into it, but you can easily follow along without it. All in all I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to get into 64bit assembly programming.
Contrary to recent kindle technical purchases, this one hasn't been ruined by kindlization. Indeed so far it's proving a very good read. The last time I seriously touched assembly was 8bit 6502 back in the day, this is a really rather good introduction, at a bargain price too!. Thanks Ray
