I found Blunden's book to be other than what I had hoped. Instead of
surveying the field of virtual machines and runtime
environments... discussing their applications, the designs, and the
implementation tradeoffs, it discusses ONLY a single implementation --
that of the author -- and what he did, rather than why.
As an intro to VMs, I cannot reccomend this book.
That said, I'd be happy to sell my copy (mint condition).
Just email me.
