From the Back Cover

((shelf classification)) PC Hardware & peripheralsThe SCSI Bus & IDE InterfaceProtocols, Applications & ProgrammingSecond EditionFriedhelm SchmidtAlmost all computers, including PCs, workstations and mainframes, are equipped with a SCSI interface. The SCSI Bus is designed to connect hard drives, tape drives, CD-ROMs, scanners and printers to any type of computer, while the IDE hard disk interface is found almost exclusively in the world of IBM PC compatibles.Outside the ANSI standard documentation, little additional information was available about this specification until The SCSI Bus and IDE Interface was first published. This fully expanded and updated second edition continues to provide an accessible description of both SCSI and IDE interfaces, including an explanation of essential terminology together with a breakdown of the commands and protocols. The book acts as a tutor to SCSI and IDE and an invaluable guide to the ANSI literature.Key aspects of the book:· Description of peripheral core technologies and device models· Detailed descriptions of SCSI and IDE, including the physical and logical interfaces, command sets and a summary of the essential terminology· Thorough cross-referencing to the previously impenetrable ANSI documentation· A practical chapter on testing SCSI targetsFeatures new to this edition:NewAll SCSI material has been adapted and updated to reflect the new SCSI-3 standard documentationNewA new chapter on SCSI-3 Serial interfacesNewA fully updated disk containing the source code for the program examples and a SCSI monitor tool for testing and troubleshooting SCSI devicesFriedhelm Schmidt is an independent SCSI consultant based in Heilbronn, Germany.

Format: Paperback
Because of the rapidly revised specification and tons of legacy issues, it's not easy for a book to cover the latest technologies as well as the former ones. This book isn't quite up to date especially in IDE. If you want to know what is UDMA or Tailgate, they are not in this book.
For a beginner that is about to implement devices or program drivers, this book should be a good entry, but not enough. If you have already know how hard drives work, save your money and download the newest spec.

Format: Paperback
This book is mainly a reference for the SCSI Interested professional. It will not cover the IDE interface in as much detail as you would like. If you think you will be speaking specifically to a hard drive via code, you will have to memorize interrupt values, AND pay very close attention to the protocol information. This book isn't quite what you think,nor was it what i expected. Although an informative reference for basic SCSI devices, i'm still searching for one that will help me program for hard disks. Hope this was helpful.

This book was advertised as being new, looked to be in good condition, but many of the pages had highlighting, notes and other markings.
