1.0 étoiles sur 5Disappointing: A good book done badly.12 mai 2004
Par Bob_Bryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
If this were the only book in the world on the subject, I would probably recommend it. As it happens, there are lots of other books out there, almost all of which are better. I picked up this book because I always enjoy reading how computer architecture is covered and it seemed to contain some subjects of particular interest. I promptly discovered that while it contains a lot of good material, it is incredibly poorly organized, badly edited and actually contains factual errors. Parts of it remind me of a professor I had in college that covered material he had read about but have never actually worked with. I am kind of surprised to see material presented this way in such a nice looking textbook from a respectable publisher. What is particularly frustrating is that there is a lot of good material here. If it were massively edited with some major rewriting (with fact checking), it could be turned into quite a good book. Until that happens, I would suggest avoiding this particular volume.
