The list author says: "Hey, this is one of my (Kaiwan Billimoria's) Amazon Listmania! lists. It covers well regarded, popular and recommended books on the topic. This is a list that I recommend to participants attending my "LINUX Internals & Device Drivers" (DG-L1) training program. Details: http://www.designergraphix.com ."
"Excellent coverage and ideal for delving into the subject - a relatively easy read; still, you get nuggets here! Robert Love has a great easy-to-read writing style. Recommend this book as a great starting point in Linux kernel concepts & kernel programming. The third edition is great: it's up-to-date as of the 2.6.32 and 2.6.34 kernel!
"A new book (2008); seems to cover virtually all classes of hardware for driver authors. Excellent resource, wish this book was out earlier! I remember reading somewhere -"this book poses the only serious threat to the classic LDD3"; very true!!"
"Excellent to be used as a primer-to-intermediate book on these topics. A super thing is that both x86 and PowerPC architecture discussions on Linux are undertaken; by far most books only focus on the x86 architecture."
"Update [feb '09]: just got it. Initial impression: pros- v solid and vast coverage of internals topics, arch-independent. Cons- hoped for a lighter writing style, arch-independent (would have preferred some depth), seems fairly long winded.
Nope, I haven't read it - yet. From the general reviews I've seen though, I can't wait to get my hands on it and check it out in detail. Looks very promising."
