Amiga-related Books FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about

Amiga Related Books FAQ was compiled and written by Marc Atkin with numerous contributions by others.

This FAQ is compiled as a service to the Amiga community. It is an attempt to give the Amiga programmer and user an overview of useful books for his/her favorite computer. It is not complete. If you feel that a book should be added to the list, want to comment on one of the books in the list, want to point out mistakes or add missing information, please send e-mail to: atkin@cs.umass.edu

I think it is useful to hear people's comments about particular books. That is why some book descriptions are followed by quotes that I picked up from the Usenet Amiga news groups. If you want to have your comment removed or want to say something about a particular book, please contact me. Anonymous comments, content-free opinions, or remarks that I determine to be factually wrong will not be accepted.

The most up-to-date text version of this FAQ can be found at: http://eksl-www.cs.umass.edu/~atkin/amiga/books.faq.txt There is also a HTML version available: http://eksl-www.c s.umass.edu/~atkin/amiga/books.faq.html

Book comments without an attribution are my own (well, at least I take responsibility for them). I try to give information about the newest edition of a book. If a comment's date precedes the publication date, it's probably referring to an older edition.
