Even my tutor did not like this book.


I'm a computer science student and last semester I had a GUI course where this HCI book was in the curriculum. It has to -without a doubt- be the worst book I have ever read. There is absolutely nothing useful in it, whatsoever. Nothing in that book will help people design better user interfaces for their programs/web pages. You'll be much better off simply with the use of common sense!

DO NOT EVEN BOTHER


This has to be the worst guide I have ever bought. Everything is on there web site.The reson I buy guides is so I don't have to go on the net. I likehave a book I can refer to quickly. With I have to go on the net with my 56k modem and wait forever to get the info I want. Anyways don't even bother buying this. It SUCKS!

Excellent Beginner's Book!!


I read this book from cover to cover. This is simply, hands-down, the BEST book you could read if you have never done any assembly programming and want to get started. This book takes an approach that is unconventional to most other books you would buy, and yet it is the best approach. Had I not read this book first, I may never have understood assembly language level programming.
While this book is not real deep, it's a great start. After reading this book, you will feel confident in your knowledge of assembly language programming to read any other texts on more advanced assembly language programming.
Notably, this book does not cover protected mode, however, I don't believe that is a concept beginners should focus on. BUY THIS BOOK if you don't buy any other if you want to truly understand assembly language programming.
