Although anyone wishing to learn 6502 machine language (ML) will likely find this book instructive and worthwhile, the specific example programs are written to work on five popular personal computers: Apple, Atari, VIC, Commodore 64, and the PET/CBMs. If your computer uses the 6502 microprocessor, but is not one of these machines, you will need to find a "memory map" for your particular machine. These maps - widely available in books and magazines, and from user groups - will allow you to follow and practice with the examples of 6502 machine language throughout this book.

The book starts of with an introduction to how computers work, what Binary and Hex are, and how they relate to programing. All the basics are covred with enough detail for a beginer to understand what they are doing.
Next the subject of Monitors, and Aseblers is discussed. Followed by chapters on the instruction set, and a very usfull chapter on basic comands equivelnet ML instructions.
If you know your way around a computer you will definatly have a good understanding of the fundamentls and be able to code your own ML programs with this book.
On the down side Mansfield chose not to cover the BCC and BCS branch instructions, as well as anything other than the most fundamental math. BIT was also hardly mentioned.
This is definatly a good intudction to 6502 Machine Language, but if you realy want to master Ml you'll need more books.
