I'll ditto that. He does a good job of mentioning side effects and common
uses of instructions that may not be obvious. As far as which to buy, my
strategy has always been to get them all. I've got a fair few books on the
6502 series, or books with substantial sections on the chip, and every one
has paid off at some time or another.
