I HIGHLY recommend this book
I have not been able to put this book down. It is simply the most
useful book on understanding the design and implementation of
languages that I have seen. It won't show you how to build your own
from scratch, but if you are trying to understand how to design and
implement a language, like I am, you need this book.
My favorite aspects of this book...
It is not littered with example code
It is not a history book
It is not a "for dummies" book
It is not full of proofs
Surveys of existing languages
FYI - It's 856 pages long and cost me $70.
