This is an excellent treatment of the MSIL topic at just the right level if you're in need of nitty gritty details for debugging, disassembling, or generating IL code. Coverage of the PE format for managed executables is the best I've seen. The text is well-written, the examples are clear and concise, and the diagrams are very helpful. The book can be used as both a tutorial and a reference: the appendices include an ILAsm grammar reference, a metadata tables reference, and an IL instruction set reference. The book is also available electronically to owners of the physical book.

Coding in assembly language requires a little different way of thinking, and being aware of lot more low level details, compared to writing the code in a high level language like C# or VB.NET. Since I have not written an assembly language program in a very long time, it was quite a challenge to follow this book. But I must say that, the author has done a good job of laying out the concepts in a way a novice assembly programmer like me can benefit a lot from it. I can't claim that, after reading this book, I have become very good at IL, but I am quite confident that a second run through this book and more practice in IL coding will take me closer to being there.

First three chapters of this book dive straight into an IL program and compare it with a C# program. I thought it was great way to open the book by getting your feet wet quickly without overwhelming you. From fourth chapter onwards the book goes into details of windows PE file and arrangement of Metadata into modules and assemblies. I have not found this kind of detailed information about Metadata layout anywhere else. It is tons of information and still does not overwhelm you. This information is useful even for a high level language programmer and therefore I would recommend this book to all .NET developers.

As author says, .NET universe is like a great pyramid turned upside down and CLR is the tip on which this pyramid stands. ILAsm is the language that describes every feature of the CLR and therefore learning ILAsm language will help all .NET developers build a strong foundation, and that is where this book comes very handy.

Covers even more than the ECMA 335, which actually defines the Common Intermediate Language (CIL). It's all you need to understand .net assemblies and since the internal structure hasn't changed the book is still valid even for version 4.0.

Wonderful experience writing an IL code generator. Project went quickly, easily, with high quality result. Thanks to Microsoft's .Net and IL ecosystem, and three books; Expert .Net IL Assembler (Serge Lidin), Common Language Infrastructure Annotated Standard (James S. Miller), ECMA-335 CLI Standard (downloadable from ECMA).
