We used this book back in my first compilers class, as a wee undergraduate with more exuberance than good sense. It's, frankly, pretty terrible, especially compared with the other compiler texts other there (it's closest to Aho-Ullman in its coverage). I saw it in the Engineers Bookstore used the other day, and might go pick it up just for sentimental reasons.

Do not buy this book. I am sure that there are plenty alternatives to it. Although it gets the job done, i found it pretty unpleasant to read, partially due to the weird algorithmic notation used throughout the book.
