If you've read this book I'd love to hear what you think. Also, I'm always interested in your recommendations for other "good reads"...

Most half-decent books deserve to be read multiple times. You don't buy a CD and just listen to it once, do you? What I hate about your book reviews, Clive, is that I am on such a tight budget that I can't afford them. I'll try my local library but I suspect that your taste and theirs are not quite the same.... But keep them up. If nothing else I can read vicariously through your reviews.....

Hi there -- you might want to check with your library anyway -- if I request a book from my local library and they don't have it, they will borrow it from another library (it works amazingly well really).

I have visions of what's going to happen. I'll go in there with a list of all the books you've reviewed and they'll be tearing their hair out! But I'll give it a go and let you know how I go if I get any of them.

If the worst comes to the worst (by which I mean no luck at the library), email me at max@CliveMaxfield.com and I'll send my copies via the post for you to borrow.

Hmm ... $6.50 including shipping on Amazon. Doesn't sound too excessive to me.

But David lives in the outback in Australia (behind the beyond where few men have gone behind, beyond, before [grin]) ... so the post is a little more (kangaroo mail doesn't come cheap [grin])

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
