"When I was first charged with the lightning bolt of the promise of software possibilities, I found this book. It helped me see how to view a microprocessor's capability in a comfortable, natural progression of understanding. It provided me what I wanted to know where I expected to find it. The references to related information, missing in most documentation, always seemed to be both appropriate and conveniently located. It was as if Zaks knew my own, unique desire to learn and how it naturally unfolded. It felt as though he had prepared each of the steps that I would need by having been where I was. It served me tirelessly as a reference until it fell apart. Books of this type are hard to find today."
"When I was first starting to program I came across this book. It was not only a well written, complete reference on the Z-80, it was a perfect reference book. Now, when I program, I generally need several reference books hanging around. Mr. Zaks said it all, cleanly, concisely. Any success I had in my later programming, I have always felt that his book was at the core."
"Every thing about the Z80 you want to know, and more."
This book explains techniques for using, altering and adding features to the CP/M operating system.

"Learn everything about assembly-language programming with the Motorola 68000. This self-contained tutorial will take you through all the necessary steps from understanding what assembly programming is, through a mastery of such advanced techniques as exception or interrupt programming, and interfacing with higher level languages and operating systems. A thorough treatment of the 68000 architecture and instruction set lays the foundation for industrial or custom applications. Beyond this, a unique feature of this book is its relevance to such essential topics as: The UNIX operating system: Version 7 System V System III Xenix. The C programming language. The CP/M 68K operating system. This book has been designed to cover the 68000, 68008, and 68010 processors. These processors are used in a wide range of products such as: The Altos, The TRS-80 Model 16 Computer, The Apple Macintosh line, The Apple Laser Printer. Steve Williams, recently Research and Development Project mananger at Digital Research, was the Operating System Manager for Tandy on the TRS-80 model. He graduated in Electrical Engineering and has a Master's degree in Computer Science, both from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville."

If you read some basics of the hardware you want to work on, this book will take your work to new heights. it even gives great techniques for reducing memory use and/or processor use (which is extremely important on legacy architectures.)
If there is one book you can buy to improve your 6502 knowledge and programming techniques, this is it!
Seriously, avoid other books on the 6502 until you've read this!!!
