At first sight, the book seemed a bit short for $40. But there is quite a bit of information packed in there, and it's certainly much easier to comprehend than picking up one of Knuth's books for the first time. With that said, this really is a book for computer engineers, i.e. people who really like to know what's going on at the bit level. The bit manipulation examples are given in pseudo-assembly, which is very applicable. I can't give 5 stars because of the niche target audience, but it is a very concise, interesting read.
