Reader comments:

"This text is a definitive learning resource for the student of Verilog as well as an excellent reference for the experienced designer. The features of Verilog are clearly covered with both explanations and examples. Especially beneficial is Appendix A which contains a syntax reference in alphabetical order"
- Vincent Zeyak Jr., Agere Systems

"Just finished reading your Verilog Primer for the third time. I pick up new information each time. --- Thanks for the great books!" 
- Kevin Abbott, Designer

"I read your books and I found them tremendously useful. Actually, these texts "A VHDL Primer" and "A Verilog HDL Primer" introduced me to VHDL and verilog respectly. The books were easy to read and understand. They are wonderful introductory texts. In fact, I still reference them. I would recommend them as text for a course as part of a freshmen's Electrical Engineering curriculum" 
- Lincoln A. McLoud, Bell Labs

"I have found the book easy to read, to the point, and an excellent reference" 
- Sharad Seth, University of Nebraska at Lincoln

"Like your books on VHDL and Synthesis, this book too is easy to read and understand" 
- Sanjana Nair

"In my current job where I need to create testcases in Verilog, I need a text where I can look in the index and reference quickly an example of a particular construct. That is what I like best about "A Verilog HDL Primer". The index has an extensive list of the verilog constructs. The text has easy to understand examples of how the construct is used not just the BNF format. It has become the only verilog reference book that I use" 
- Jean Witinski, Lucent Technologies

"It is a good book overall. I think people will find it useful" 
- Gabe Moretti, VeriBest

""A Verilog HDL Primer" is really excellent" 
- Yang Cao, Lucent Technologies

"I really considered your Verilog HDL Primer book as the best out of the four books I reviewed this semester" 
- Dr. Gabriel Thomas, University of Texas at El Paso

"I must say, I really like the simplicity with which everything has been explained"
- Amit Chandan, ASIC Designer, Solidum Systems Corp.
