DON'T BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!
I would not recommend this book to anyone. From the very beginning it is badly explained and illustrated, with very little regard for easing the reader in gently. The topics covered are highly complex for an introductory book of this nature and the writing style is amature to say the least. If there was an option I wouldn't have given this book even the 1 star it doesn't deserve. DON'T BUY IT!!

Most helpful computing text book I've read!
The most useful book I have bought for this subject and many other subject related to it. There were a number of complex topics in it which were new to me, but they were explained in a way that I understood. It is also very useful as a reference for stuff I have covered many times before! I highly recomend this book to anyone regardless of what level you're at!

Poor explanation throughout
I have read many books covering this subject but found this one particularly hard to understand. The concepts are not clearly explaned and I would not adivise anybody to purchase this book unless they already have a very good understanding of basic computer architecure. This is not a book for begginers
