New Virtualization Book Released

I received a copy of a new virtualization book the other day, and wanted to share it with you. It's called Virtualization: A Beginner's Guide, and is available on Amazon, among other outlets.

It's written by Danielle Ruest and Nelson Ruest, a writing team you're likely familiar with if you do the virtual dance. For one thing, they're columnists for Virtualization Review, writing the "Virtual Architects" column. They are top-flight technologists and writers, which is a hard thing to find. It's not too difficult to find folks who know technology, or to find folks who can write; to find folks who can do both is rare indeed.

I won't be reviewing the book, as that would be a conflict of interest. I can urge you, however, to check it out if you're getting into this industry, or need a refresher. Chris Wolf, our "Virtual Advisor" columnist, wrote the forward.

If you like the book (or didn't), let me know. Also, tell me which virtualization books you recommend to your friends. If I get enough response, I'll put together a "recommended reading" list.
