This is an excellent book and I couldn't believe the price. The book arrived in better shape than I hoped for. It is a good reference book.

Competent enough

As another software deveoper coming to VHDL, I was reasonably satisfied with this book. It gives a strong description of the basic language features, including the ones usually skipped in intro texts. It skips the baby steps of logic design, and shows examples of most language constructs, including overloading.I never thought I'd say it, but this VHDL book is actually a bit weak on the hardware side. It's description of processes and events seems incomplete, and the discussion of timing-related features is scant.The description of synthesis is too brief to cover many of the common variations you'll come across. If you have scars from a few optimizing compilers, though, you'll be able to pick up what you need from your tools, co-workers, and experience. Place-and-route is worth understanding. Taking real control of it, though, is usually something done cautiously and within the context of specific tools and chip characteristics. A few chapters of the book focus on specific tools - naturally, not the ones I use. I found those missable.On the whole, I find this book helpful. Perhaps other books are better, but lots of books are lots worse.

Very Nice Book

It is a very nice intro book on VHDL. And did a good job demonstrating VHDL on a simple CPU design.A note to computer programmers:Despite what most people thinks, VHDL is NOT a programming language. No more is Verilog HDL a programming language, and Verilog is somewhat like C. So don't read this book in the mindset of a computer science/software engineer view point.Other than that, this is a great book for undergraduate computer engineers who have little or no background in VHDL.

All u wanted to know about VHDL but didn't know whom to ask!

Personally I found this the best book available on VHDL in the market today. Buy this book if you are new to VHDL. The book doesn't assume too much from the reader and works it's way to the core gradually. The companion CD makes a great add-on with the Modelsim VHDL simulator thrown in. The CD also includes VHDL code for the problems in the text.

Outstanding source of material

After considerable reading through other source material - Perry walks you through VHDL like a master of the subject. I have seen him in person at seminars as well and undisputably he knows what he is writing about. A top Recommendation from me.
