    Learning Assembly Language Programming for £5

    "Max is 6' 1" tall, outrageously handsome, English and proud of
    it................"

    "Alvin is a well-travelled English gentleman, being born in Assam, India

    where his father managed several tea plantations....."

    Bebop Bytes Back is their first attempt at a collaborative venture.
    Surprisingly, they are still talking to each other!

    So begins what I think is one of the best books that I have ever read on
    what really makes computers tick. Containing a fully functional
    Internet-ready virtual computer this book takes you through a series of
    chapters - beginning with Chapter 0 'just to keep in with the spirit of the
    subject'. There are excellent and detailed explanations of how computers
    work at a component level. This is supported by interactive video clips
    support active laboratory work on the virtual computer. It is here that you
    will learn to write and understand Assembly Language. Starting with a bank
    of switches, just like they did on the first computers built, before you
    progress to using a hexadecimal keypad and the keyboard to enter assembly
    language code using both machine code and assembly mnemonics. End of chapter
    quizzes with questions such as 'What colour socks did some Vikings wear?'
    keep the wacky narrative flowing. This is not a trivial book by the end you
    will have learnt what really makes computers tick and have a lot of fun
    doing it.
