While I'm still not quite done with this book (it's HUGE), and I do expect to go back and re-read it when I'm done, it has been a very welcomed deep dive into the internals of the Linux kernel. I find that it has answered quite a few questions I've had about what makes the Kernel tick, though it has also spawned a few new questions for me, too. Anyone interested in what makes an OS tick, or anyone aspiring to be a kernel hacker should really consider picking up this book. Just be warned, it's not for the faint of heart, and you will need to set aside a LOT of time.
