Good overall

Carefully selected content and very practical approach. This practical content emphasises crucial Linux design aspects like: device drivers, memory management or special debugging techniques.
(Almost) everything is kept at a common level of principiality, no matter the Linux kernel version. Nevertheless, given the year of apparition (2010) some new concepts brought by latest kernel version are obviously not fully explained but given as trends for future development (especially related to the latest hardware/software technologies): virtualization, newest device drivers, memory caching, to name just a few important things.

Good explanations overall for those who want to get acquainted with Linux's internals and therefore low-level flavors.
Requires at least Medium level of programming experience.
