this is a great introduction to compilers. there's no advanced stuff inside, and i think that's what makes the book very readable. after reading it you will know what are object files, symbols, linker, loader, recursive descent parsing, how the processor executes code.
unfortunately there are many "c++ programmers" that don't know how the program turns from source to executable and this book will definitely fill the gaps.
