Good book for starting on kernel. If you already pro look for O Reiley one.

This is an exellent book for amateurs who looking to start learning Linux kernel. I recently started working on Androi keneld, this helped me understand what linux kernel is it all about.
The kernel in detail is very vast and complex. So it always make sense to get an overievew first of all the areas of kernel and then depending on your work/interest dive into one/others.

Its not a encyclopeida or bible for kernel.Don't buy with that expectation. Its a short guide or quick quide or starter.

Lots of things are not explained in detail. Like for example they explain kernel memory and memory allocation startergies like buddy allocator algo. But if you want to read how buddy allocator works it dosent have! You cant expect whole kernel in under 400 pages !

PS : Read Robert Love's answers on quora ( he is amazing there!) and online aricles by him. He is an amazing System Software Engineer .

Best Beginner Linux Kernel Book

I initially bought "Understanding Linux Kernel" which was at an expert level. This book provides a very good understanding for beginner level. I suggest to read both the books at the same time to get deep level of understanding.

Just what Trovaldis Ordered

On Linux Kernel, there are 2 books. I have both.
If you are novice to Computer Science, you probably want to get into this one.
Brilliantly written, lucid style, never boring, and has plethora of data points about Linux Kernel.
It is very succinct, starts every chapter with a theme, why we need it?
And then goes on explaining why it was done that way. This is the kind of book you *SHOULD HAVE* had at your engineering college days, reading about operating systems.

Overall, a MUST for anyone working with Linux. PERIOD.

Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Worth every page

The book is very informative read for anyone who is trying to learn how the Linux kernel works. It provides quick starting bases about each area of the kernel without obscuring the concepts with excessively complex lines of code. It also works great as a supplementary text to any Operating system course as it gives you a good overview of how the basis operating system principles are implemented in Linux.

The book is available as a preview on google books so you can read through a few chapters online. But it's definitely worth to buy this print copy.

excellent to begin kernel programming

I haven't yet gone through this book completely (still on chapter 7), but its a great experience. As far as I am concerned, I was looking for something like this which can introduce me gently into linux kernel architecture and design. I know that the kernel version covered by this book is lower one but nevertheless, some concepts never age. Its also a recommended to those who want to learn some tricks (used in the kernel) and can apply them in their own applications. Also go through any introductory Operating systems course before reading this book.

Good Kernel Concepts

I enjoyed reading every word in the book. The topics are well arranged and organised. The internals of kernel are well described. Any who wants to learn kernel internals can read and practice kernel internals.

People involved in platform team development in areas, will be helpful.

Good book to...

Must have book for Linux Kernel

I had bought this book 6 months back went through recently. I found this book extremely good for beginners and for the best output I would suggest "Understanding Linux Kernel" in parallel for best output. (View complete review)
