Bare metal Amiga programming

In a german forum I was made aware of this book "Bare-Metal Amiga Programming: For OCS, ECS and AGA" which can be found here: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B09GJQ3SF6/

I thought you might find it interesting to know, because it seems to cover all relevant topics for programming the Amiga without OS.

AFAIK the book is in English.

I have the author's Classic AmigaOS Programming book, and it was pretty decent. While I'm not really interested in doing bare-metal dev, I might just pick this up anyway.

I own this book and I'm really impressed with it. It's really detailed and well written and I would 100% recommend it for anyone interested in Amiga hardware programming.

I can confirm that it is written in English and is available on UK Amazon.

Just ordered my copy, seems to be self-published.

Now that I received it, I'm not as impressed as I hoped. It's a good overview with lots of tables, but some parts are really just mentioned in passing (like the keyboard), without codeexamples.
Other parts have quite good example coverage (like the copper).

After a quick look, it seems good in terms of explanations... but it doesn't seem to offer any new information. However, the examples seem really good and might make it worth the price. The original hardware manuals (for example on the blitter) aren't nearly as good. But I haven't looked at it in detail yet.
