This book is boring and would not be a good choice for a textbook. It is basically a collection of datasheets for Intel-based PC hardware (e.g., processors, interrupt controllers, keyboard controllers, clock circuitry, bus interfaces, etc.) It also includes a very short section on MS-DOS-based assembly and Visual C++ 2003.Even though it was published in 2005 as a 7th edition, the author didn't bother to put any info on the then current processors such as Pentium-M, which were released two years earlier. Instead, it has numerous pages of useless specifications for 80186/80188/80286 chips. It offers very little over the freely available Intel Software Developer manuals and is certainly not as complete or up-to-date.
It's a book
WARNING - do not handle this book. absolutely the most boring, hard to follow textbook ever. It is more of a technical manual than anything else.
