New book on garbage collection

After 15 years, Richard Jones has written a new monograph about garbage collection called The Garbage Collection Handbook. This supercedes his previous seminal book on the subject Garbage Collection: algorithms for automatic dynamic memory management.

In particular, this new book covers state-of-the-art techniques including parallel, incremental, concurrent and real-time garbage collection algorithms.

I'll post a review as soon as I've read my copy!
