The material is excellent, but the Kindle format is horrible. Jan. 3 2014
By Donald Morton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For someone who's been affiliated with HPC for 20+ years, more at the machine-independent level, this book served as an excellent review of things I've only touched lightly on over the years, as well as providing more depth at a level closer to the hardware. It's well-written, but I think someone would want to have just a little bit of computer architecture course work to really get this. And, indeed, in the introduction the book states that it's meant for the HPC applications programmer.

For the material itself, I would give it 4 or 5 stars, but the Kindle formatting is really bad. Here is just one line, randomly picked from the page I'm currently on

A ctually, t he loop is n ot vectorized d ue to t he st riding through memory.

Imagine reading a full book like this. It's material I'm interested in, and I'm willing to cut through it this way, but it seems a shame. On the other hand, unlike many other Kindle books, figures and code samples are formatted very well. Somehow, they just didn't get it when it came to typesetting. I should note that I've only tried reading this on my iPad Kindle Reader.
