While 6502 platform by today's standard is far from leading edge, still can serve as a model for learning purpose of rudimentary building blocks which make up a CPU based computing system. In that respect I found Buchannan's book both informative & educational. Also the practical examples he presents adds more interest to the subject, so you're not just reading a bunch of theory and building blocks, but can envision putting them together to make a system that does something tangible. Don't get hung up on the syntax as its written by a technician, not a technical writer, or a literary author, and that's what makes this book genuine, because it comes from someone who's been there and done it for real.
I was given a free copy of this book to read, so my review is not biased one way or another. What impressed me most about this book is that the author has a real knack for explaining a very complicated esoteric subject without the reader having to have advanced knowledge of computers. He does this by relating everyday situations and subjects to computer functions. We all use computers in our daily lives, and take for granted what's actually going on in this very complex machine. So using situations like Shopping in a grocery store, or buying a can of beans was really genius realizing these simple things to computer functions. We all, as children, used an Etcha Sketch. The author compares using this toy to describe computer programming. He used a water hose, music box, playing a guitar, and running a washing machine as objects to further demonstrate and help the reader understand the basics of programming and computer functions. I highly recommend this book to people who want to learn about the computer without having a technical background. The authors attempt to make an extremely complicated subject on a simpler more understandable level, was genius in my opinion. Job well done!
