3.0 out of 5 stars When it says beginners, that's what it means., December 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Raspberry Pi Assembly Language RASPBIAN Beginners (Kindle Edition)
For the absolute beginner, these books could be quite good as Mr. Smith goes out of his way in explaining various aspects of the linux command line, the use of binary values in computing and so on. For a more experienced programmer looking for a quick introduction to ARM assembly on the Pi, you will probably find yourself skipping chunks of this. The conversational tone is again, nice for beginners but will drag for others who might prefer a more structured approach.

I did hit yes for your review being helpful, despite the fact I think you giving it 3 stars for being a beginner book when it says so is lame. I did find it helpful to know that this would be the right place to start though.

You knocked off two stars because you're not a beginner and that's what the book was written for? What's your major malfunction?

I am an old hacker who has written in the past a lot of INTEL and 8051 Assembler code. I thought it might be fun to buy a Raspberry and to do some assembly programming again on the ARM.
Do you know a better source which fits my needs?
