The book is very good introduction to the ARM assembly language. If you have a Raspberry Pi or other ARM based system running Linux, you will be able to easily use this book. The concepts are covered well and concisely making it an accessible read particularly if you have coded before.
I was also pleased with the gentle introduction to the GNU debugger - another thing that I’ve had on my list to learn and now I feel confident that I could use it. Also, there is an introduction to macro assembly. Further chapters cover floating point instructions and Thumb.
It is fair to say that it would help if you have coded before to read the book but that is not a fault of the book - the subject matter is not easy. Although there are a few typos in the edition I read, I have found this book to be an excellent read. I have learned a great deal about ARM.
I have not finished reading it, but it goes into the background of ARM architecture. Helps you understand the differences between many types of ARM processors.
I really like Bruce Smith's book "Raspberry Pi ASSEMBLY LANGUAGE Raspbian Beginners" too.
I find his books contain details you'd have to "really dig for", to find out.
Love This Guy ...
-- An Assembly Language Programmer and Engineer trying to learn programming on the new embedded systems.
(1) the fact that it actually gave real sample programs, and explained basic stuff like how to assemble and link assembler programs (which is not obvious if you're only used to C, C++ or even higher-level languages)
(2) the useful discussion on how to leverage the powerful set of routines already present in the OS and the C standard library
(3) the basic, but thorough, introduction to vector computation with NEON
Not so good bits:
(1) the chapter on IO was a bit weak, as it ended up using a rather generic model that didn't exactly touch much onto the practical. A shame, because the bits about virtual memory, and the need to map hardware registers onto user memory was good.
So, an excellent starter.
