I have read this book and have had a student do a project using some
of the techniques it contains. As far as it goes -- and its focus is
as much on OO techniques as on compiler construction -- I though it
was pretty good. However I missed more thorough treatment of
code-generation, and especially optimisation, or run-time issues.
The code for the book is also available from ftp.bethel.edu/pub/epc.
The price in the UK is UKP 26 so $68 sounds excessive.
[I checked, the P-H web site says that US list is $71.00! Guess it's time
for a litle trans-pond arbitrage. -John]
