"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 probably is the best book on GC that is both systematical and practical. Really helpful for understanding all GC algorithms.
This is an excellent book and the on-line resources are quite good. The content covered is well-described.
