    Yes, several. I found them on Amazon.com after using Google. I suggest you do the same.

    Hi

    Actually, it is not so simple to get a good assembler learning book.
    In addition, which assembler to begin with? MASM, TASM, NASM, ...
    Although there is "only one assembler language", the implementations
    are slightly different.

    I have three online (free) references and one book to recommend:

    MASM Reference[1], int80h (nasm) [2] and of course The Art of Assembly[3].
    After you understand how it works, I would have a look at the
    Hacker Disassembling Uncovered[4]

    Cheers.

    A resource I found invaluable when learning assembly was gcc. There are compiler options so that you may output whatever c/c++ code as assembly, and allow you to compile that code.

    The following website is also quite helpful:

    Ok, ok, you're right. That question so worded just tickled my 'smart ass' bone and set me into that mode... I apologize.
