Iaroslav Tsisarzh has published a book that uses fasm as one of the primary tools: Programming from Scratch. If you tried it and would like to share your review/opinion, please post here.

As you may know, there are no promo codes on Amazon. Instead, in a week or two, I will set the price to the lowest price possible on Amazon - for a week or so, I guess. If you have any questions, leave a comment below.

Cheers!

Thank you, I can now at least imagine what is in the book. Smile One more thing, have you put a special accent on the fasm macro mechanism (this is very important for the fasm newbies)?

No. I do explain how invoke works, but that's it.

OK, I understand. The theme of programming in assembly can be shown from various perspectives. One point of view may focus on a truly low-level programming, where we consider basic algorithms, try to prove their correctness. Another approach is to show a way that leads quickly to user-friendly applications and, at the same time, proves that assembly may be equally good as any HLL in that matter.

I haven't bought the book. By looking at the code examples, I assume the book targets Linux users?

Linux is used to explain the basics - it is much simpler this way.
