Not exactly a book but I've been using www.6502.org as a reference for my Lynx project.

Why buy any books? 6502 books can be hard to find in the wild.

Here are links to the complete texts of four 6502 asm programming books. The focus of the books is on the 8-bit computers, but the processor is the same so you can learn the basics of the instruction set and addressing.

Machine Language for Beginners

The Second Book of Machine Language

Atari Roots

Assembly Language Programming for the Atari Computers

I have had an awesome book from the late 70s, I think it was.


Programming Microprocessors and Microcontrollers or something like that. That it was my favorite 6502 reference, until I lost it or my parents lost it in a move sometime down the road.
