A free online resource or book that teaches about processors and machine code or asm.

Does anyone know of a book or a free online resource that teaches about the inner workings of processors, with diagrams or pictures or some kind, that use assembly or machine code examples?

I'm not sure quite what you're looking for, but this is an excellent resource (if you're not already aware of it):

This is a bit simplistic..
... but it might also be (at least part) of what you're looking for:

Thank you. I was aware of it, but haven't read it yet. I read some of it. I just can't find a book like that ... machine code or assembly, very low level, with tons of low-level information. But not too difficult - pictures and easy examples, etc.
I agree, of all the books and sites I've seen, that seems to be the way to go ...

I'm gonna mark this as solved, since I think "Programming from the Ground Up" is the book to have, as far as what I'm asking about. I know there are quite a few tutorial and how-to type resources online, but not books. "The Art of Assembly" seems to have a lot of information in it, even though it teaches HLA and not really assembly. The only other thing I could do, I think, would be to buy a book.
I'm 120+ pages into "Programming from the Ground Up", by the way, and it's been a very good book to learn from.
