An academic, readable UML book.


This book is quite wordy but otherwise readable "academic" UML.Would help user more if author shows more of UML-Java/C++ mapping as most dev can feel a lot more for code than abstract UML diagrams. This book is mostly for concepts. It teaches you the "What" of UML, not "How" to use it.

Easy Reading


I am a web graphics designer who likes to learn more than simply designing web pages. I am good at Flash but want to learn some scripting and programming. I enjoy this book very much because the examples work and the authors are very patient in explaining their ideas.
I really recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn ActionScripting with Flash.

Good technical introduction to computer organization topics


I use this book as a reference in my technical writing.
I recommend this book to everyone who have a basic Assembly Language programming background and want to understand everything behind the Machine Language Operation Codes decoding process.

The authors build from scratch (and you learn from scratch):

* How to build a complete Arithmetic and Logic (ALU) Unit
- Basic Logic Gates processing
- more advanced topics as Ripple Carry

* How to build a complete Control Unit to guide the ALU Operation
- Microprogramming vs. Hardwired Control Implementation

* Assembly language examples for programming the Control Unit

It is a good Technical Book in this area.

Complement the study of this book with the Assembly Language Programming presented in the book "The Art of Computing Programming", Volume 1 by Donald Knuth (also, if you need more application examples of low level programming, review Volume 3 "Sorting and Searching"). This is a very good study track.
