Advanced ASIC Chip Synthesis: Using Synopsys® Design Compiler™ Physical Compiler™ and PrimeTime® Reviews
This book is geared towards the synopsys synthesis tools (as evident in the title). It gives brief explanations about vhdl and verilog coding style (which can be found in many other books).
Covers extensively tools part , easier to understand than following an synopsis user guide
I am not sure for whom this book is intended. It tries to cover all the Synopsys tool with very simple examples and some commands. It is probably useful to a student but not for an industry. Any internal company document about DC,PT etc will have much more information.
