And you walk away not just with a solid understanding of the concepts but also an almost reverent appreciation for the beauty of these complex systems. He has taught computer systems courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels for 20 years on such topics as computer architecture, introductory computer systems, parallel processor design, and Internet services.

All the chapters are excellent, except maybe chapter 7 on linking and chapter 8 on exceptional control flow. Computer systems: A Programmer’s Perspective explains the underlying elements common among all computer systems and how they affect general application performance. It takes great passion and love for a subject to present it so beautifully in a book, and I will forever owe my clarity on these concepts to them. The code examples are well-written, easy to understand, and provide a practical context for the theoretical concepts being discussed.The book has concrete and easy to follow along examples in C (basic understanding of C is required), which makes the book very practical.

These include several types of simulators, as well as formal verification tools that prove the correctness of a design using mathematical methods. In 2003, Professor O’Hallaron and the other members of the Quake team won the Gordon Bell Prize, the top international prize in high-performance computing.

Overall, "Computer Systems: A Programmer's Perspective" is an excellent resource for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of computer systems and low-level programming. He is a fellow of both the ACM and the IEEE and a member of both the US National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Marred by imprecise and ambiguous language and a lack of coherent flow from subject to subject, this was probably my least favorite architecture book. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.

Being new in this area of CS, I had a hard time actually assessing whether I got sufficiently around the 'need-to-know' concepts (the answer is probably 'No'). As a computer scientist, a book you can quickly look things up in is essential and this book does not do that. Whether you're studying computer science, programming, or just interested in learning more about how computers work at a low level, this book is definitely worth checking out. The authors provide all lab exercises online for those on the self study path and they are easily the most exciting part of the experience which I thoroughly enjoyed. CSAPP turned out to be a good find since it is aimed at the intersection of computer architecture, computers systems and OS.

Professor Bryant has taught courses in computer systems at both the undergraduate and graduate level for around 40 years. The great thing about this book is that is leaves no questions unanswered about the topics it covers.
