The previous reviews are misleading. They mentioned the old edition (first or second, I belive).
This is a newer Third edition, which is totally updated and extended. Now the book has more than 900 pages. The newer edition (Third edition) includes new VHDL 2008 feature and compares VHDL2008 vs VHDL87, VHDL93, and VHDL2002. Each chapter has questions and exercises, the answers are listed on the end of the book. The valuable things are that author gives two case study chapters, chapter 17 for a memory controller, and Chapter 22 for a 8 bit RISC like CPU core. Both chapter composed of a very good study example for a nearly real world workable design example, which involves applying Wishbone Spec B.3 and PSL for verification. The book also includes a brief list of VHDL standard packages, which are very convenient for beginner to use. All source code can be found in website so the beginner can learn the concept with much more complete details. All these together are hardly found in other similar books.

I own the 2nd edition, so I can feel that this newer third edition is not just a extending the old edition, but a completely different new one.
The author did great job. Highly recommended.
