Overview



This book takes a modern structured, layered approach to understanding computer systems. It's highly accessible - and it's been thoroughly updated to reflect today's most critical new technologies and the latest developments in computer organization and architecture. Tanenbaum’s renowned writing style and painstaking research make this one of the most accessible and accurate books available, maintaining the author’s popular method of presenting a computer as a series of layers, each one built upon the ones below it, and understandable as a separate entity. A CD-ROM for assembly language programmers is available for teachers. For all computer professionals and engineers who need an overview or introduction to computer architecture.

Like all of Tanenbaum's books, this one contains excruciating details on all aspects of the title subject. More useful for hardcore introductory courses or as a reference when writing papers. I usually wear-out a couple of highlighters on each of his books and fill the margins with notes, trying to keep track of all the data he's dumping on me. This book contains a great deal of discussion on the microcode level, which you're unlikely to find in many other bound volumes. Tanenbaum does the research for you, saving you countless hours wading through RFCs and OEM publications.
