About me

Ash School

This is a list of all the books on the z80 microprocessor that I know of. I have included comments on the books i have read, but this is only a very small part of them. If you have read any of the books please mail ME. The list has been divided into smaller parts, one for each language.

I have also made a list of books on the 68000 (used for the ti92), you can find it here. Unlike Z80 books 68000 books should be very easy to get because they used in so many computer like Apple and Amiga. I find it easier to read books which only discripes the processor and not a whole system, so my advice would be to get books and the microprocessor and not Amiga/Apple.
