    Default Assembly

    Hey guys, another off-topic question. I know the people here are pretty knowledgeable and I was wondering if anyone who knew assembly knew of a good way to start? I have found some online resources, however; I enjoy having a book. Are there any good intro books that anyone knows of? I'd like a book that is the equivalent to the Head First books, but any decent book recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    There is no such thing as one assembly language but rather many that are geared towards specific processors and OS's. What processor/OS are you looking to use this with? Back in the day, I learned my 8088 assembly language from a monthly column in PC magazine. This no longer exists, and my memory of assembly has long since faded away. :(

    I have an x86-64 with windows that I was thinking of trying to get into a little bit, not quite sure where to start though.

    Hm, well good luck with this. I myself will be happy if I don't see assembly code ever again. I don't think you'll find a Head First equivalent or an Assembly Language for dummies, but for my money, if I had to learn this, I'd try to find a bunch of cheap used books on the subject as it's been around for a good long while.

    Ya, I'm sure it will be a challenge, just trying to find more things to learn(as if I didn't have enough already). I always see people saying how good it is to know assembly and understand the low level details but it seems like there is no easy way to learn it.
