If you're interested in programming for the Cell processor then this is the book to get. It's easy to read and covers wide variety of topics. I'd recommend this as the starting point for learning the Cell architecture.

This book makes a great guide for developers thinking to exploit the parallelism capability of IBM Cell Broadband Engine. The big problem for now with the Cell processor system is just being new and lack of quickstart tutorials.

Though documents accompanying IBM Cell SDK really covers a lot, it still lacks the way of presentation. Even the installation guide on SDK documentation is bit confusing with loads of information. IBM SDK docs in short suffers data pollution. This book just gets things flowing through easily.

This book is not & doesn't pretend to be a complete reference of the Cell SDK libraries. But it gets you to the level from where you can depend on the reference guides(IBM docs).

NOTE: I was already experienced with CBE development system even before glancing through the book and have a long experience with other parallel systems like FPGA. So beware of that before taking my review.

Go run with the world of parallel processing.
