This book is different. Very different.
In this book, I am going to pull the curtain back and let you see the little man operating the switches and pulleys. You may be excited by what you see, or you may feel sorry that you decided to look. But as Enrico Fermi would agree, knowledge is always better than ignorance.
This book provides an in-depth look at memory subsystems and offers extensive source code examples. In cases where I do not have access to source code (i.e., Windows), I offer advice on how to gather forensic evidence, which will nurture insight. While some books only give readers a peak under the hood, this book will give readers a power drill and allow them to rip out the transmission. The idea behind this is to allow readers to step into the garage and get their hands dirty.
