Issue No. 09 - September (1976 vol. 9)
This remarkable book begins at an elementary level and carries its treatment of both hardware and software to an unexpected depth in the discussions of priority interrupts, direct memory access, and microprogramming. The groundwork laid for the comparative evaluation of microprocessors is the best this reviewer has seen outside of limited-distribution publications carrying much higher prices. The book is flawed by many typographical errors and a few misleading or erroneous statements. Most of the errors are obvious and can be readily corrected by the reader.
