It should be named "The Art of High Level Assembly Language"
i bought this book via amazon.com. firstly, it is not the same book as the online version. This book is the condensed version. Lots of unimportant but entertaining stuffs from the online version are gone ! Thus making this book like a reference manual. Perhaps the publisher was trying to cut down on paper costs ? The title of this book is deceiving. Though it talks alot about ASM but its primary focus is HLA. Still, it's a great ASM/HLA book that covers the basics and the advanced stuffs. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to know the fundamentals of ASM.

I goofed around with Java for a few months, but it never sparked my interest in programming. That all changed when I found this book. I had always thought of assembly as an 'elite' language that can be mastered only by experienced programmers. Hyde's approach makes it easy to learn assembly whether you have experience in high level languages or you are just a beginner in programming. The book does a great job of teaching the machine level implementation of concepts that are the back-bone of other programming languages.
Hyde's assembly language compiler (HLA) also comes packed with a very powerful integrated macro system and run-time language. You actually get two languages in one. Couple that with loads of white-pages and support material that extend what you learn in the book and you have one impressive package for learning assembly.

I give this book an A++. I can't put it down. The approach used by Hyde to teach assembly seems to be aimed at everybody, whether you know nothing about assembly, or you've been programming in a bunch of high-level languages for ages. I'm learning more from the AoA material than I've learned my whole life. I feel like Hyde knows how to reach his readers and get his point(s) across very well. Setting up HLA for Windows is very easy and the instructions for doing this are clear. If you get stumped over something, there's even a mailing list you can join to get answers to anything you want, so you're really getting more than a book; you're getting a guarantee that you will *learn* assembly language programming and all of the things that go along with it.
