The subscription that you pay for Amazon Unlimited goes into a fund which is used to pay the writers of the books that you read for "free". Amazon monitors how much of the book you actually read, and the writer is paid accordingly, so no one should feel guilty about reading books in this manner - it's a great way of assessing books properly without bad writers being paid a significant amount for their dismal work, while quality books receive full payment (if every page has been turned and kept open long enough to read its content). But yes - it's still advisable to buy copies of Ben's books on paper if you need to work from them a lot (I'm thinking of his USB book in particular) as it's a lot easier to work from those, while any extra pennies sent his way are always going to be small compensation for providing such a great service to a very narrow readership.

You are absolutely correct, and thank you for the kind words.

This book is FANTASTIC. I don’t even care that you use Windows; the information is x86 anyway, and there are plenty of resources to help with the details of switching.

But there aren’t resources that have so much excellent information, from the ground up, about how a computer works and how it relates to OSDev.

DEFINATELY buying, I am a huge fan already. I recommend this book to anyone!

I have the first book in your series. At first I overlooked it since it was (relatively) dated, but it's becoming a massive help! I'm hoping to add my own experience with newer concepts like UEFI, which could help me make something more modern. Thanks for creating this series! I look forward to learning more as things go forward

I appreciate all the great words I get from everyone.

As always, if you (or anyone else here) have any questions, please feel free to create a new thread and we will see if we can answer them.

Thanks again,
Ben
