By reviewing the TOC of the book, I don't think that JVM-related topics are in the book. But I think there will be at least some introduction about the JVM in the book...

Mr.James can answer more detailed questions in the book...

I much doubt such things belong in a beginner's book...
If you really must know the nitty gritty details, there's the JVM specification from Sun, apart from that the JVM just is.

I cover this in an overview - very high overview - just enough for you to understand a little of what is going on behind the scenes. Anything beyond a high over view should be in a very advanced Java book designed for programmers who need to build a JVM.
