Understanding and Writing Compilers
by Richard Bornat
Publisher: Middlesex University 2008
Number of pages: 435
This book attempts to explain and demystify the principles of compiler writing so that you can go out and build a working compiler of your own. There is enough detail in this book for you to build a compiler for quite a complicated language, but it doesn't attempt an encyclopaedic coverage of the field.
