    Good book for assembly and CPU architecture

    Hi everyone,

    I am learning c++ and am still at the very early stages.

    I can see the merit of the programming but am really interested about what is actually going on inside my computer.

    I want to delve a bit deeper in other words.

    Could anyone recommend any good books about assembly language or how the CPU works, something along those lines, but please bear in mind I am quite new to all of this. I'm doing an IT degree but so far we have never touched on anything remotely deeper than the buses/FPU/memory allocation (very basic), and that was only one very small block within one module.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Sam.

    Want to really learn what is going inside your computer? Try building an OS. Here's a site with tutorials and advice:

    That is AWESOME!

    Can only write if/else/loop programs so far so I imagine this'll be a nightmare. Can't wait!

    Thanks

    If you're not joking, I was. I seriously don't recommend it! Actually, I suggest you don't even attempt such an endeavour until you have sufficient experience and knowledge.
