Norton and Socha's authority makes this book a must to every "beginner" assembly programmer. This book presents basic items such as binary numbers, registers & basic arithmetic inside the 8086 family processors into part 1. The contents of the book becomes closely related with DSKPATCH - a real program written in assembly - so the reader has a UNIQUE opportunity to see how real programmers (and here Norton is a PC guru) use step-wise refinements techniques and modular projects. Fantastic book, the best way to learn Assembly by far. Arrived quickly and in great condition, and is the only reason I passed my Computer y class.

This book still has its uses, for anyone wanted to start a little lower than C/C++/Java, yet not completely getting off the programming track. Interesting challenges are throughout, with mini-Norton Utilities constructed with the provided examples. and the chance to make it better

This book teaches the basics of x86 ASM using MS-DOS.

Pros:
This is a rather well-written book. It teaches the basics of x86 ASM in an MS-DOS environment. It goes through the basics of binary math and teaches the reader how to print text on the screen using assembly. It covers basic x86 concepts like Registers, Interrupts, Loading, Storing, Input, Processing/Math, and Output. It also teaches the reader how to read/write files to and from the hard and floppy disks, and even blink some lights on the computer.

Cons:
The ASM in this book will -not- work correctly for newer systems like Windows 7/8, nor will it work in Linux or Mac environments. The fundamental concepts can be cross-platform, but this book calls MS-DOS specific interrupts to read/write files to and from disk and to display text onto the screen (which is the majority of what the book covers). This book covers only the basics of x86ASM and does not fully go into the verbosity of the intel instruction set (which is a 7 volume book series in and of itself). There are a few typos and one or two lines of incorrect code, but it is pretty easy to sort out within 5 or 10 minutes.

Other Thoughts:
If I recall correctly, this uses MASM as its assembler of choice, which still works on modern systems. You can take the assembled code and run it in DOSBox. There are some things in the book that will -not- work correctly under DOSBox because of the fundamental design differences between DOSBox and for realzies MS-DOS.

This also does not teach game programming in MS-DOS with ASM. It won't explain how to render/blit pixels to the screen, nor data storage concepts that are centric to game design. If you're wanting to nostalgia all over your keyboard by making a Lucastarts Adventure or DOOM Shooter for MS-DOS, this will give you a basic primer in how to ASM, with a bit of MS-DOS dashed in. This book is meant as an intro to ASM and will not cover the more advanced concepts of software/game design.

If you're looking for an interesting, old-school read or a coffee table book for your basement command center, this will be an excellent choice. Otherwise, this doesn't have much practical use in today's computing.

Who knew Peter Norton was not only an exceptional coder but also an exceptional writer!
His clear and casual style should be emulated by all technical books.
By far the best book to learn assembly bar none!
Before reading this book I thought the Jeff Duntemann assembly book was pretty good but this book makes it look bad!
First half of book has you working in debug, which comes with every version of windows, and thus easier to get coding assembly than using Masm.
2nd half covers Microsoft's Masm but code still works with latest version of Microsoft Assembler 8.0 which I'm currently using!
Except for the disk writing code of course, since modern versions of Windows won't let you directly manipulate disk interrupts.

Norton and Socha's authority makes this book a must to every "beginner" assembly programmer. This book presents basic items such as binary numbers, registers & basic arithmetic inside the 8086 family processors into part 1. The contents of the book becomes closely related with DSKPATCH - a real program written in assembly - so the reader has a UNIQUE opportunity to see how real programmers (and here Norton is a PC guru) use step-wise refinements techniques and modular projects in a real world. The 2nd edition is based in MASM 5/5.1, Borland TASM and OPTASM features. Maybe we must wait for MASM 6.1 update... then it'll become a rating 10...

This wasn't exactly what I wanted. I should have payed more attention this is for DOS IBM stuff . The shipper sent very quickly and the book arrived in good order. So I will give 5 stars for this.

Other thoughts:

This is neat to see where ASM starts for example moving the low level registers which for when this was written they were the registers...

good seller and the price was dirt cheap. Thank you!

Fantastic book, the best way to learn Assembly by far. Arrived quickly and in great condition, and is the only reason I passed my Computer Organization/Assembly class.
