This is the book Sinclair QL Companion by Boris Allan, published by Pitman Publishing Limited in 1984.

More of a collectors item rather than a useful book, the Sinclair QL Companion is a useful handbook providing guidance on how to write structured programmes for the Sinclair QL in SuperBASIC and 68000 Assembly Language.

It includes an overview of the Sinclair QL's second processor, the Intel 8049 chip which is used to handle peripheral devices, such as the keyboard and sound.

Unfortunately, the book suffers from having been written before the author had an actual QL computer - for example there is a section on creating a turtle graphics system for the QL, which is no longer relevant due to the QL having its own implementation built into SuperBASIC
