    Inside the Machine by Jon Stokes - Conclusion

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    My conclusion should come as no surprise. The points that I've made should make it clear enough that I consider this book excellent and magnificent. It was a great read and a comprehensive introduction to microprocessor and computer architecture. This book is excellent for every level of reader from beginners to engineers with many years of experience and a technical background. I rate this book perfect and a must-have for students of computer engineering, microprocessor architecture, and perhaps even VLSI.

    Nonetheless, this book is not a replacement for the classics by Hennessy and Patterson. (i.e., A Quantitative Approach) Neither is it a competitor. Its style is different. It offers enlightenment for everybody. The reader isn't forced to revisit formulas and theories of mathematics and calculus. The book is designed to be a reference for you to review chapter(s) whenever extra clarification is needed.

    I'm giving this book 10 out of 10 and the Dev Hardware Platinum Award. I, for one, can guarantee that you won't get more detailed, in-depth explanations and descriptions of the most famous and popular computer architectures or such a great introduction into microprocessor architecture as this one. Its unique style, which fits the needs of virtually any reader, is just that—unique! You can grab a copy at either Barnes&Noble or and find out for yourself.

    "This is, by far, the most well written text that I have seen on the subject of computer architecture. The writing is clear, logically organized, well illustrated, and is contemporary . . . A work that will be viewed as essential to any student or professional in need of education on the subject." -John Stroman, Technical Account Manager, Intel

    "Inside the Machine" is definitely a great book and I wholeheartedly recommend it. Anyone having a slight interest to those passionate about this topic will be impressed. Congratulations, Jon "Hannibal" M. Stokes!
