In short, this is Unix SVR4 internals, and nothing else.

I had to take a Sun course that was heavy on kernel internals; I never would have passed the test without this book.

This is not for the faint of heart or the idly curious. It does explain everything very well, and leaves very little to guess about, but it probably shouldn't be the very first internals book you read.

Of general interest, however, is the chapter devoted to "crash", that under-documented wonder of the kernel world. Even if I hadn't needed this to pass that awful test, I would use it for just this chapter alone.
