    I need a good Assembler programming book for the intel proccessors. (I am assuming that its the same for both Mac and PC, but if not, I need a PC book)

    Thanks.

    I just bought "Assembly Language Programming for INTEL processors family" written by Vasile Lungu (Romanian), published by Teora USA. It's been translated into English.

    It's OK. I've only made it through page 60 (of 550+). Some parts are good, while others assume a bit too much for the reader (at least THIS reader).

    I have lots of experience with assembler, albeit on IBM mainframes. Last assembly coding I did worth mentioning on a PC was circa 1991.

    Overall, it seems to be good enough, but perhaps a bit too much on theory and less on practical application.

    For a good, basic, practical intro to assembly programming, I used these books when I was learning:
    • Using Assembly Language, 2nd edition, by Allen Wyatt. Que publishing. 1990
    • Assembly Language Primer for the IBM PC & XT by Robert Lafore. The Waite group. 1984 (in color - woo hoo!)
    • An Introduction to Assembly Language Programming for the 8086 Family by Thomas Skinner, Wiley Press. 1985
    • Assembly Language Programming for the 80386. Hernandez & Ashley. McGraw Hill. 1990

    Well, nix this one - it's obsolete, as several of the instructions are no longer valid with ML.EXE.
