By Shay Harding on November 22, 2006
Format: Paperback
I just got this book in the mail so have no had a chance to go through the entire thing, but looking at the contents, I can tell at least a few chapters are wasted on topics such as:

Installing Linux: pgs 79 - 114

Using Linux: pgs 115 - 149

I can forgive a dozen pages devoted to getting, installing and using NASM since that info might be needed by a real novice. IMO, if you are looking to do assembly-level programming on Linux, and you don't know anything about Linux and don't even have it installed.... better learn something easier first.... there are entire volumes dedicated to using Linux... no need to waste space in an ASM level programming book.

Otherwise, this book looks very good. Much better than "Linux Assembly Language Programming". Don't get that book; I own both and this book has proven more useful in 2 days than the other one in 2 years.
