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.
The author has tremendous insight on the subject matter, is an expert, and it shows every time he explains how certain things are done.

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.
