ReviewText: I was surprised to come across the text online - I already had a copy sitting on my own bookshelf. The forward notes that the "WAM is an abstract machine consisting of a memory architecture and instruction set tailored to Prolog. It can be realized efficiently on a wide range of hardware, and serves as a target for portable Prolog compilers."
