Mauro (and other beginners),

I too, am a beginner and have done a lot of research to learn about using
these little critters.  I read (sorry I don't remember where) some VERY
bad reviews and opinions about the book you mentioned.  They said it was
full of errors that would likely confuse a beginner.  I got the book "Easy
PIC'n" and the name aside, is in my opinion, a pretty good beginner book.
Look on Micro Engineering Labs' web page to get a copy of it.  I also got the
embedded control handbook from Microchip.  It's available on CD and in
print.  It also appears to be available in pieces on their web pages (It's
just lots of application notes).  Also, the official data sheets for the
16C84 (on Microchips web site, too) have good simple examples of
instruction usage.  I also recommend going to Parallax's
(http://www.parallaxinc.com I think) FTP site and downloading their PIC assembler
(spasm) and their application notes ( I found them all bundled in one zip file
and they are also in the site in individual files).  The Parallax version of
PIC assembler is a little different (it has a "super-set" of instructions that
look like some other micro's instructions) and easily converted but their notes
have some good examples.  By the time I got the Easy PIC'n book, I pretty much
had it figured out from the other stuff, and the book helped tie it all
together.

HTH,
Scott
