Hi Mike,

I'm the author of the beginning book. Currently working on the second 
edition (and an advanced book as well, both will be out by Q4 this 
year). I'm interested in your comments about the virtualization chapter. 
Would you be willing to provide some more in-depth feedback on that 
chapter? That could help in making it a chapter that better forfills 
your needs :-)
