Wiley, 2000
Up until now, there were two books on compiling I kept coming back to: the "dragon book" and Ronald Mak's "Writing Compilers & Interpreters". Each time I do my DFA's and NFA's and DAG's and stuff in the dragon book and give up feeling like a total idiot. Then I go for Mak's book and get real practical. After Mak everything works. In one particular way and usually almost good enough. Now Grune's book is somewhere between these two. Much more practical than the dragon book but still totally useless in practice. At least for me. It's certainly worth reading, though, since you really do pick up things here and there. But if you need to write a recursive descent parser in a hurry, do go for Mak and be done with it. If you want to know what else exists in this world, then possibly go for Grune. ( Added 1/2002)
