Magnificent! I'll probably wear this book out!,
This review is from: Essential Linux Device Drivers (Prentice Hall Open Source Software Development) (Hardcover)
This book starts by covering the kernel architecture, placing drivers in their context and discussing the support structures that exist for them, with that start everything else follows naturally, and logically.
This book is bang up to date and addresses every significant class of driver, and many of the idiosyncrasies of the driver models. While old hands will know much of this material already, this is the one stop reference for 90% of the details you'll need for the task in hand, and has excellent pointers for where to find the rest.
This is one of the best "working knowledges" available on paper, and is both a great starting point on the road of experience, as well as a worthy reference for those en-route.

I agree. BTW this book relates to Linux Kernel 2.6.23 / 24. Also it points out when Kernel APIs changed and hints at APIs that could become obsolete.
