Short description Taking an integrated approach, this book addresses the great diversity of areas that a computer professional must know. It exposes the inner workings of the modern digital computer at a level that demystifies what goes on inside the machine. Throughout the pages, the authors focus on the instruction set architecture (ISA), the coverage of network-related topics, and the programming methodology. Each topic is discussed in the context of the entire machine and how the implementation affects behavior.
