    Terse and Dense, but Good I have always wanted to know more about how a CPU is “wired,” as I’ve thought it would give greater insight into Assembly programs. I was pleased to find this book, and even more pleased when it delivers on its promise. It steps you through the creation of logic gates and multiplexers, to sequential logic units like d-flops, and then strings it all together. It can move fast, so you have to work at keeping things straight, but if you are following along using Logisim like Terse and Dense, but Good I have always wanted to know more about how a CPU is “wired,” as I’ve thought it would give greater insight into Assembly programs.

Though it was a bit fast and dense, I learned a lot from this small book. Don’t hope for it all though, this book is only an introduction and produces a very simple CPU, whereas heavier digital design textbooks will cover even more. It’s a great starting place though in my opinion.
