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.

Buy this if u know what u want

An excellent book with all the fundamentals of the operating systems explained in a professional manner. You should buy this book if u have some basic knowledge abut the algorithms and schemes and logic behind the OS. This is NOT A SPOON FEEDING book. You are introduced to the world of OS such that you are in line of becoming expert in it. BEST OF LUCK for your study.
