5.0 out of 5 stars *The* reference book for Garbage Collection, 14 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Garbage Collection Handbook: The Art of Automatic Memory Management (Chapman & Hall/CRC Applied Algorithms and Data Structures Series) (Hardcover)
The Garbage Collection Handbook is the most up to date, detailed, and exhaustive collation and description of the current state of the art of the Garbage Collection and Automatic Memory Management available today. It is an imperative reference book for anyone working in the field, and I would consider it the textbook of reference covering 'GC 101' thru 'GC 530' course levels, if such courses were given at universities worldwide. As CTO of Azul Systems and co-creator of multiple modern concurrent collectors, Richard Jones' previous 'Garbage Collection' (1996) book was indispensable to my work over the years. The Garbage Collection Handbook has immediately taken its place. Each of our GC engineers has a copy on their desk.

Gil Tene, Chief Technical Officer and co-founder of Azul Systems

This review is from: The Garbage Collection Handbook: The Art of Automatic Memory Management (Chapman & Hall/CRC Applied Algorithms and Data Structures Series) (Hardcover)
This book gives a thorough and detailed review of modern garbage collection algorithms including the tricky subjects of parallel, concurrent and real-time collectors and yet remains comprehensible throughout. Moreover, the information contained within is presented as a fascinating narrative littered with interesting observations and insightful remarks, making this book a real gem.

Anyone developing software built upon a garbage collector would do well to brush up on the theory that underlies this core subject and there is no better way than to read this excellent book!
