Hi I’m Bruce Smith, thanks for taking the time to check out my website and books. Books about ARM and the Raspberry Pi can be found on this page and you can use the menus to find details of previous computer and sport related titles I have written over the past thirty years.

New Book – Launch Offer

To the right you can see details of my latest book – ARM A32 ASSEMBLY LANGUAGE. You can register your interest for this title now and get the eBook for just $2.99 – that’s $7 off the full RRP – cheaper than a cup of coffee! No obligation – just let me know you are interested and I’ll send you the details in late May. At that point decide if you want to buy. Just click the button now to register. What’s too lose?

Where to Buy

Is this the book for you? You will find a detailed contents list and description, plus a review or two for each of the Raspberry Pi books on the associated book page (click on the book image). You can buy my books online and through major distribution channels. Click on any of the links below for your preferred sales option. Some of my books are even available via iTunes. Print books are available on Amazon and Wordery. EBooks are available through Amazon, Gumroad and Smashwords. Several of my books can also be found on the book subscription site Scribd.

Digital Age

I write and produce my own books. The advantage of this is that I can ensure they are up-to-date and as accurate as possible by revising them regularly. Changes and updates, as and when they occur, are notified on the book resource and errata pages mentioned above, so please check them out.


My books are compatible with all flavours of Raspberry Pi. As you may be aware the Raspberry Pi 2 has a more advanced version of the ARM chip than originally released on the Model A, B, A+ and B+. The content of the Assembly Language books is still applicable as a beginner.

Book Resources

Each book has a resource page, including links to items referred to in the book. The first link on each page allows you to access files and programs from the book. To download files from any of the books, you will be required to register. I will occasionally send out an update and this may be in the form of a special offer or discount, not available elsewhere.

Stay In Touch

I occasionally communicate through social media, so please feel to follow me on Twitter or Facebook. I tend to go in spurts as when I have things to say, so you can rest assured you won’t be inundated with updates.

Email Me

I love hearing your feedback and happy to answer questions about my books. Use the contact form here if you would like to get in touch. I do my very best to answer them all.

Swallow (Family) Resource Centre

With the help of a distant cousin, I have compiled a great deal of information about my maternal family. Dating back to 1662, this information can be found on the SRC webpages.
