Item description for Disassembling Code: IDA Pro and SoftICE by Vlad Pirogov...
This book describes how software code analysis tools such as IDA Pro are used to disassemble programs written in high-level languages and recognize different elements of disassembled code in order to debug applications in less time. Also described are the basics of Assembly language programming (MASM) and the system and format of commands for the Intel microprocessor. Aspects of disassembling, analyzing, and debugging software code are considered in detail, and an overview of contemporary disassemblers and debuggers used when analyzing executable code is provided. The basics of working with these tools and their operating principles are also included, and emphasis is placed on analyzing software code and identifying the main structure of those languages in which they were written.

Reviews - What do customers think about Disassembling Code: IDA Pro and SoftICE?
For beginners only Feb 1, 2006
If you don't know anything about what is a disassembler or a debugger, then you may find this book interesting. Personally, i bought it because i thought it would go in deep in IDA and softice. Unfortunately, the author cover both of those tools within 100 pages giving nothing more than a summary of commands. All the remaining content is about assembly (that is if you don't understand anything in the intel reference books), the PE format (studying PEDump and reading Matt Pietrek article would be better), some little cracking sessions (the free articles on the net are far enough for this purpose), some other tools like W32dasm and disassembling some sample windows programs. Well, i am disappointed and still waiting for a good reference book about reverse engineering.
