Descrizione prodotto


J. Clark Scott has had a long and diverse career in the computer industry, starting at large companies such as IBM and Intel, and eventually becoming the author of four successful consumer software packages. Early in his career, he noticed how confused some of his friends were about computers and gave them lectures to teach them how simple the basics really were. It was at that time that the idea for this book was born. This is his first book, but one that has been in the works for decades.

This book teaches how computer function. The heart of computer-CPU. A foundation brick to understanding for a newer to CPU functions, how it works. A computers CPU comprehensive knowledge. You must have passion for computer otherwise, with the fewer coloured schemes and diagrams it gets you bored easily.

5.0 su 5 stelle It really is for Everyone 30 settembre 2016
Di Ryan - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I am currently a 2nd year Electrical Engineering student and I am enrolled in a Digital Logic course. I found this subject to be very interesting and decided to research further into how computers use simple gates to do such complex functions. That is when I came across this book. Even with the little previous knowledge I had, this book broke everything down - from the simplicity of a register, to the building blocks of the RAM and CPU. It was enlightening to easily read more in depth on an otherwise extremely complex subject and finish the book with the knowledge of how most computers work. I highly recommend this book to my fellow Electrical and Computer engineering colleagues.

But don't think that just because engineering students find use of this book, that it is too complicated for those out of the discipline. The author does a great job of breaking down every little necessary nuance of each building block and thoroughly describes how each block works together to make a computer work; all wrapped up in a short ~200 page book. It is written without complex, technical jargon which avoids confusion wherever possible, and is readable by most who have a strong desire to learn more about how computers work.

This was such an interesting and informative read. Again, I highly recommend this book to anyone with even the slightest curiosity about how a computer works.

5.0 su 5 stelle Finally, Clarity on a Complex Subject 13 luglio 2012
Di Barrett Cunningham - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I have always been intimidated by computers. They seem ridiculously complex and overwhelming to understand. I wasn't happy having this feeling about something I used every day so I decided to try to learn a little more about them. I didn't realize it at the time, but computers are evidently very difficult to explain. Part of the reason for this I think is that there are so many areas of specialization in computers that no one seems able or willing to sit down and try to give a beginner a good overview of the subject that is simple yet detailed enough to allow them to walk away feeling like they learned what they wanted to know.

I think that may be why Mr Scott wrote this book. He genuinely wants you to understand how a computer works. He evidently spent a LOT of time designing the computer in this book. It is a fully functional computer and, from other research I have done, it actually works a lot like the computers we use every day. That is rare to find. There are many books out there that talk about the grand theories of computing but never get down into the hardware and what the wires and transistors are actually doing to make things work. Other books will try to build a very very basic computer with you but since it is just a teaching tool, you learn a lot of concepts about computing that don't really work well in reality. This book is the happy medium between the two, not too technical to be overwhelming and not so basic that its unhelpful.

If you are looking for a book that will help you understand how your computer works, this is it. There is no other book that I have found that can explain this subject in such a way that you walk away feeling like you finally have clarity on a subject that has been so fuzzy for so long. Its a good feeling, and I highly recommend this book to you if you are looking for that kind of clarity about computers as well.

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Everything I learned from this book was absolutely necessary for my first steps to learning computers. I have more advanced books that will summarize this entire book within 30 pages- it was overwhelmingly to fast. This book has got me past that chapter and many more. My only complaint about this book was the first couple of chapters - of which were to basic for me, but if I didn't read "code" by Charles Petzold than these chapters would have been less repetitive for me and absolutely necessary. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. If you need help understanding this book, read the green book in the recommended list or code. All three of those books will give you a confident grasp on computers. "But - How do it know" helped me start on my fourth book inside the machine (more advanced; on 16, 32, and 64 bit computers).

If you want to make sure you understand everything, the order I read all four of these books started with the "green one"(Rodger young), "Code" (Charles Petzold), "But How do it know" (Clark Scott), and Inside The Machine (John Stokes)- not entirely finished with this one but is easy now. I understand everything %100 I have read in all of these books- but I believe the order I read the books helped me understand it all within a short amount of time. I am hoping to understand my fifth book "Elements on Computer Systems" (Noam Nissan) which a while back I thought looked like gibberish on paper. lol

I have always been interested in electronics and computers. My father was a old-time main frame COBOL and FORTRAN programmer and he was always very nebulous to me about how a computer actually worked. What I've always wanted to understand is how a computer uses basic physical principles (circuits) to generate logic - I understood Claude Shannon's original thesis on the idea of use simple relays for Boolean logic but I never made the jump to higher order processes. This book is the bridge! The author makes it very simplistic from the start and builds slowly to more complex ideas until - before you know it - you basically understand how the electronic circuits create the abstract ideas of registers/buses/memory address...etc.... Loved it. Anyone who really wants to understand how your program ultimately is broken down into the basics of circuits, this is the book for you.

Di Bruce - Pubblicato su

I'm using this to help my kids build a computer in Minecraft with redstone circuits. It's easy to understand and goes all the way down to the gate level. I was worried that it would gloss over how the control section of a CPU works. It is not only complete but gives many ideas about how to make improvements later. There are also videos on YouTube based on this book that help even more. I highly recommend this book.
