I found this book to be very useful as I learned about reverse engineering on the Windows platform.

I highly recomend this book.

The appendix of this book alone is worth the purchase. Some very solid and useful information regarding compiler optimized outputs and in a very digestable presentation.

Agreed.  Two thumbs up.  Not to mention that Amazon has it for $25, even though the cover price is $40.

The abstract of the book is really clear, you can use as reference as well. Long introduction to RCE included struct of Windows system and copyright law of reversing.

Best book I've seen published on RCE.

Useful book. Good breakdown of RE targets -- program structure, code flow and data structures. Nice overviews of winternals, code, compilers, hardware, and big picture of how it all fits together.
It's also nice to see an author excited about reversing three lines of assembly (p. 53), instead of providing a superior, holier than thou voice that avoids what can seem to be obvious explanations! No napoleon complex with this author.

Beginners should at least go through jeff dunteman's book first. The reversing book starts off as though complete beginners can do this stuff. To understand the examples, you really need to have a firm grip on C and assembly.

recommended read to anyone who wants to learn about reverse engineering on windows.

This book is a must have for RE.  Dense in Details.  Dense in examples.  Dense in resources.

EASY to understand.

This book is the best book in my collection on how to reverse engineer.

He leads into ideas in a very logical well laid out manner.  Gives examples.  Gives extra information for those interested/a little unsure.  Then wraps it all up with a good application of what hes talking about.
