The description is correct when it says there is no Source Code that comes with it, you do have to email him and let him know what info he needs to prove you bought the book. His own website and even inside his book tells you what you can do. He can send you the source code via ISO image digital copy or you can pay shipping and he will send it via a CD to your mailbox.
The code is presented in C langauage, but he uses some Assembly language ( A86 ) along with C code to talk to your hardware. You can get the free A86 assembly, but looks to also be compatible with YASM / NASM assemblers as well. ( I only use YASM. )
Some of the Main Topics in the Index of the book are as follows :
Chapter 2. The Parallel Port
Chapter 3. The Serial Port
Chapter 4. The Serial Mouse
Chapter 5. The PS/2 Port
Chapter 6. The PS/2 Keyboard
Chapter 7. The PS/2 Mouse
Chapter 8. The Bus Mouse
Chapter 9. The Sound Blaster
And after that there are some Appendix chapters.
I ordered all 6 ( currently all he had at the time of this review ) of his books. I'll have them all in my greedy little hands soon. I am drooling already. As I said in the topic, its like reading the OSDev Wiki website, but all on paper, which I prefer. And if the OSDev Wiki scares you, at least with this book, you will be able to follow along with no problems.
