Assembly Language Step-by-Step: Programming with DOS and Linux Second Edition

It was 1985, and I was in a chartered bus in New York City, heading for a press reception with a bunch of other restless media egomaniacs. I was only beginning my media career (as technical editor for PC Tech Journal) and my first book was still months in the future. I happened to be sitting next to an established programming writer/guru, with whom I was impressed and to whom I was babbling about one thing or another. I won't name him, as he's done a lot for the field, and will do a lot more before he's through if he doesn't kill himself smoking first.
