Windows NT Device Driver Development is a well-organized, easy to read, and complete introduction to NT device driver development. It could be read cover to cover as a student text. Because of its clean layout, the book is as valuable a reference as any of the resources listed above.
The book is authoritative, and the asides come from the (apparently extensive) personal experiences of the authors. They have recently been active and helpful on the mail lists described in the resources appendix. Windows NT Device Driver Development is also well edited. There are no major errors or omissions. The index is large and accurate. Index entries are purely topic and concept based. As a commitment to quality, the authors and the publisher have offered a bug bounty...Read more from this review.--Regan Russell, Dr. Dobb's Journal -- Dr. Dobb's Journal

This book is probably more important than any other technical programming book written to date. The reason is drivers can crash the computer and poorly written drivers do it on a regular basis. With Windows NT becoming the worldwide server operating system of choice it is very important that drivers work and work well. This book not only discusses all phases of driver development, but teaches the audience correct methods of developing robust drivers. In a matter of weeks you will learn techniques and kernel programming practices that normally take years to develop.
The granularity of the book is well thought out and will serve the kernel programmer well. If you have been given the task of developing a bus master DMA driver simply turn to chapter 17 and you will learn more than you ever wanted to know about DMA with examples! If you just want to learn about how NT manages memory turn to Chapter 3.
This book will become the de-facto standard for NT device driver development and must have on any serious developer's bookshelf.
