Good introduction August 1, 2011
This textbook deal with all the issues you will face while engineering a MODERN compiler. Each subject is rather a brief introduction than a thorough discussion, but detailed enough to give readers a good introduction working as a good pointer when you need more detailed information. So to sum up, this textbook does a great job of introducing you to compiler design. It is well written and very easy to understand. It also does a good job of discussing different compiler design choices and their pros and cons. Highly Recommended
