IBM PC assembly language. (book reviews) Susan Glinert-Cole.

Two Books

The fine, detailed books on the IBM PC are beginning to appear in quantity. I bought two of them this month: IBM PC Assembly Language by Leo Scanlon and Inside the IBM PC--Access to Advanced Features and Programming by Peter Norton; both are published by Robert J. Brady Co. The former is very good and the latter outstanding; both books read quite plesantly and contain a great deal of information which hitherto had to be painfully extracted from technical manuals. One rainy Sunday afternoon I managed the first third of both books (I am a fast reader), and emerged at dinnertime without feeling particularly confused.

Review Grade: B-
