Day 3: Enclosing Features and Data in Objects From Teach Yourself OOP with VB.NET by , SAMS.
One of the most important principles of objects is that they enclose functionality and data while providing an interface with which to interact with other objects. An object's users don't care how the object does what it does; they just want it done well and to have a simple interface. This "black box" characteristic of objects is known as encapsulation.

Chapter 3: The Common Language Runtime From .NET Common Language Runtime by Kevin Button , SAMS.
At a high level, the CLR is simply an engine that takes in IL instructions, translates them into machine instructions, and executes them. This does not mean that the CLR is interpreting the instructions. This is just to say that the CLR forms an environment in which IL code can be executed. For this to work efficiently and portably, the execution engine must form a runtime environment that is both efficient and portable. Efficiency is key; if the code does not run quickly enough, all of the other features of the system become moot.
