    A Rare Find

    Most people realize that Gnu's assembler (as, commonly referred to as 'Gas') is not fit for human consumption. After all, it's real purpose in life is to assemble GCC output. As *nobody* writes in assembly language anymore, who needs to know anything about Gas? Well, surprise, surprise, people *do* still program in assembly language. While there are other assemblers available for Linux and other platforms where Gas can run (e.g., NASM, FASM, HLA), anyone wanting to work with GNU tools will probably want to come to grips with GNU's AT&T syntax at one point or another. The only problem is that there are very few books on this subject. The FSF/GNU documentation is a complete joke. This is where Jonathan Bartlett's book comes in. It's the first, reasonable, beginner's book on Gas written for the x86 that I've found. While I can't personally recommend that someone do all their x86 work with Gas (though some will disagree with me), I'm also of the opinion that anyone who works in assembly language is going to have to deal with Gas sooner or later. And when that day arrives, this book will prove very handy. Combined with the FSF/GNU documentation for Gas (as a reference), this book will help someone overcome the roadblock that Gas' AT&T syntax has been in the past. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is because I'd like to see more depth. But that's only because I'm a bit of an advanced assembly programmer; if you're a beginner wanting to learn Gas under Linux, this is probably a great book to have.
