A fundamental introduction to x86 assembly programmingThis is a practical book and teaches assembly programming on Linux. Author Jonathan Bartlett wrote this book because he was frustrated to no end with the existing books. At the end of them he could still ask, "How does the computer really work? Jonathan's goal is to take you from knowing nothing about programming to understanding how to think, write, and learn like a programmer. You won't know everything, but you will have a background for how everything fits together. Fun story: I remember how I went through this book in , a day before a job interview, and I exactly got asked a question about how C functions get compiled to assembly, how the stack and memory management works.

Cavanagh J. X86 Assembly Language and C Fundamentals
Although some programs could still have a few machine-dependent details, they can be used with little or no modifications on other types of machines. I just don't consider a utility program that's 4 megabytes big, and contains all sorts of files that the author didn't create, to be really great software. Do you? Assembly language programs contain only the code that is necessary to perform the given task. There are areas where speed is everything , for example, internet data encryption, aircraft navigational systems, medical hardware control There are also areas where space-efficiency is everything : spacecraft control software Steve Hutchessen's www.
The x86 instruction set architecture is at the heart of CPUs that power our home computers and remote servers for over two decades. Being able to read and write code in low-level assembly language is a powerful skill to have. It enables you to write faster code, use machine features unavailable in C, and reverse-engineer compiled code. But starting out can be a daunting task. The official documentation manuals from Intel are well over a thousand pages long.
CRC Press, Some books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete; others cover masses of material but lack rigor. Introduction to Algorithms uniquely combines rigor and comprehensiveness. The book covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. Each chapter is
