See MIPS Run
The versatile offspring of an extended family of multiple chip companies, today's MIPS chips are everywhere. They power everything from videogames, network routers, laser printers, set-top boxes, and high-performance workstations. This book brings together this extraordinary proliferation of form and functionality, offering embedded systems programmers and designers unique, eminently practical insights into MIPS. It covers how MIPS started, the principles at the root of the RISC revolution, the full details of the MIPS instruction set, and how these details together constitute a full operating system ready to be put to work in hundreds of ways.
If you're programming embedded systems and need to understand the chips at the deepest level, or even if you're just curious, you're sure to find what you need in this book. It's all here, from the nuts and bolts of a programming reference to the big picture that only a true expert can deliver. So buy the book. Take it home. Step inside. And see MIPS run.

excellent book on MIPS. Too bad MIPS is pretty much being left in the dust by ARM cores. No point in reading this right now. Read full review

OK I'm reading this to prepare for my new job. However it's an entertaining read which combines a good deal of MIPS history with a solid description of the architecture. Compared to some machine overviews this book wins hands down. Read full review
