A good read: Inside the Machine


I just finished reading the book Inside the Machine: An Illustrated Introduction to Microprocessors and Computer Architecture, by Jon Stokes, and it was fantastic. It is an extremely thorough, yet very approachable, explanation of microprocessor architecture, and it uses popular Intel processors and PowerPC processors as the examples. It even covers up through Intel's Core 2 Duo chips.

It's probably too late to put this on your holiday wish list, so I'd recommend that you just treat yourself to a new geeky book.
