The last two sentences of paragraph five of page fifty-five are not valid.

"The dollar sign switches it to immediate mode addressing, which actually loads the number represented by my_buffer (i.e. - the address of the start of our buffer). (which is the address of my_buffer) itself into %ecx."

The two parenthesized expressions are redundant and the period is unnecessary.  One way to correct it would be to say:
"The dollar sign switches it to immediate mode addressing, which actually loads the number represented by my_buffer (which is the address of my_buffer) itself into %ecx."
