Pros: excellent insight, new aspects

What to say :}

In a time where high-level languages and GUI RAD tools leave us with quickly slapt together but not necessarily fast programs Hyde tries to teach the programmer the ropes of the machine.

He's not condemning the high-level languages, don't get me wrong, even though he's an expert assembler coder. He just points out that one can create better code in high-level lingos when one understands what they make the CPU do.

He covers numeric formats, character representations, CPU, boolean logic, I/O ... can't wait to se volume II, "Thinking Low-Level, Writing High-Level"!!
