More About the Author
In my loose moments I'm an amateur radio operator (now K7JPD), amateur astronomer, and SF writer. My first SF novel, THE CUNNING BLOOD, was published in November 2005 (and is now on KDP Select) but I have been selling SF stories to magazines and anthologies for 40 years, and was on the final Hugo Awards ballot in 1981. As time allows I build and fly kites and gadget-hack with Meccano/Erector parts and radio tubes.
In addition to science and technology, I'm interested in history, psychology, theology, and "weirdness," all of which feed the story machine in the back of my head. My wife Carol and I met in high school and have been married for 40 years. We live on the side of Cheyenne Mountain with four bichon frise dogs.
There's more about me on my Web sites: contrapositivediary.com (my blog) junkbox.com (tech projects) and duntemann.com, which is a quick index to all that I've published online.

Also, this book probably will -not- teach you assembly language. In fact the title is a little misleading. What this book does do is teach you the inside and outs of how your CPU and memory work, which is almost mandatory if your going to program in assembly language.
You will need to read other books to fully learn assembly language, but this was a great book to start with.
Someone had told me to get this book, and getting this book was my BEST choice on my programming. This book got me off to an excellent start on understanding Assembly. Duntemann not only explains how the code works, what it does, and how it functions, but he also includes some humorous stories.
This book is not for intermediate or advanced Assembly programmers, but for beginners. Duntemann also gives a list of recommended books for futher study of Assembly.
