Rezension bezieht sich auf: Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software (DV-MPS General) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is a fascinating book on many levels. Extremely well written. For anybody who uses computers in their work and always wondered what goes on under the covers, this book touches on just about every area and goes into great detail in some areas.
On the other hand, don't buy this book if you want practical information about how to be a better programmer or whatever. This book is definetely suited to an enthusiast who is honestly interested in learning arcane details. It isn't going to help anyone get a higher salary or a promotion.
That's what I really liked about this book. It was truly different from any other book you will ever buy from Microsoft Press or like publishers.
My only real critiscism is that it seems to run out of steam at the end. Chapter after chapter is devoted to the inner workings of logic gates, memory, and so on, but almost nothing is said about operating systems.
