                       Windows Internals 5th Edition is out. Here is a chance for you to read the entire 5th Chapter which is about  “Processes, Threads, and Jobs,”

I’m proud to announce that Windows Internals, 5th Edition is now available. It’s been a long road, but a writing a book of this scope is an incredibly detailed endeavor. This new edition covers Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 (32-bit and 64-bit) and besides revisions and enhancements to existing content, adds an additional 250 pages, bringing the total page count to over 1200 (25% longer than the previous edition). Besides new experiments highlighting the Sysinternals tools, new topics covered include Hyper-V, the image loader, debugging infrastructure, Kernel Transaction Manager, Code Integrity, Thread Pools, Mandatory Integrity Controls, Windows Driver Framework, and Bitlocker, to name a few.
