Such a great book!

I have two Inside Out books on my desk this one and Windows Server 2003 Inside Out. I've learned tons from both. If you are looking to leaern all you can about Windows XP, I think Windows XP Inside Out is the book to get. It's not a quick reference or anything but it is very detailed.

Not a good buy

Although it is a 2nd ed., still too many mistakes. Very few explaination. Ridiculously expensive. Not a good buy.

Great Reference Manual

Covers everything you might need to know about ARM assembly language programming. It has three sections: A. CPU Architecture - ARM instruction set (regular and Thumb) - ARM addressing modes - Examples B. Memory and System Architecture -System Control Coprocessor, MMU, Protection Unit, Caches and Write Buffers C. Vector Floating Point Architecture - Formats, instructions and addressing modes For a more broad and general introduction into ARM Furber's book is excellent and should be purchased first(unless you are just need a reference manual).

Sorry, not this one

I purchased this book and I have advanced half way through it, but I am giving up on the book.

PROS: Gives lots of detail. The author tries to leave nothing to chance, so that you will not get lost. Some good tutorials. The author really knows his stuff.

CONS: My edition was published in 2002, and it is now 2005. I think that it is referring to a pre MX 2004 version, because some of the instructions do not apply to my MX 2004 version of Flash, and that makes it hard to impossible to work some things out. I have decided that I need a more current book. He goes into lots of wordy detail, and I can see why, but it gets a bit too much after a while.

I don't like writing negative reviews, but I felt that buyers in 2005, should be warned.
