This is a great starting book for people who know little to nothing about the inner workings of computers. The format was great and it did well teaching the basics. One thing I would have liked is if it would talk a little more about higher bit machines (16, 32 ,64). It touched on the subject, but I wanted a little more. This is still a great book.
The best book I ever seen in the subject. Thanks, man! You are a genius.
