I think it's a great book, but I haven't read other honeypot books so
I can't compare directly. It covers a lot of ground, including every
honeypot technology I'd heard of and quite a few that I hadn't before
I read it.

I think a lot of people find the title slightly misleading - in fact
it has a lot of detail about honeypots in general and is not
restricted to virtualised implementations.
