      Does any one know of a _good_ book on the 386/486/pentium
      instruction set?

   Is there something wrong with the Intel manuals?  I've generally found
   them to be quite complete (modulo Appendix H of the Pentium book,

I saw in a book store the other day on "High level Pentium code
Optimization" or somesuch. It was very impressive and the first four
chapters were dedicated to ix86 assembly primitives up to the most
recent architectures. It escapes me whether topics like mmu usage was
handled though.
