Good source for covering almost all topics about OSs

A must-read for all cs undergrads. Covers basic nitty-gritties of operating systems.
Not meant to be a read-all-at-once. Will take time to sink it in properly.

Excellent

One of the best books on the subject. I am not too happy with the book's dimensions as I prefer leaner and flattened form, but apart from that, good stuff.

Excellent Book

Very well written and compiled book for those who are starting this subject.
Covers each and every basic topics and gradually helps in building the concept.
Delivery took more time than specified due to some reason, but no harm done whatsoever.
All in all, a great book.
