One of the absolute best...
I used this book in my college Assembly course, and after reviewing quite a number of other books, this is by far the best one I have seen to date. Sure, it does concentrate on the 8086/8088 processors and XT machines to quite an extent, but one must remember that even the latest Pentiums are 80x86-compatible processors (as far as the instruction sets are concerned), so that being said I feel that this book is far from obsolete. I've been programming in assembly on everything from the XT, to the HP200lx palmtop, to the Pentium-4, and this book has never failed to be an exceptional reference tool. Expensive, but well worth it!

80X86 IBM PC and Compatible Computers: Assembly Language, De
This book must have been obsolete already 7 years ago. DOS there is the most popular system, assembler is still 16-bit, with some "news" on few pages about "new" 32-bit one. It is ridiculous how they can annotate this book as up-to-date and for such ski-high price ! Don't fall in this trap.

Easy to read and very helpful.
I have been through most of this book and flipped through some of the other pages (not done yet). So far this book has been very informative. It describes older architecture to help you understand the newer architecture. Describing many of the chips that you do not see on your computer motherboard anymore, but rather integrated all into one IC. Eager to finish.
