"The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System" not only does a great job at covering how the UFS filesystem is implemented, but also does a great job at explaining how and Unix systems are implemented. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in Unix internals.


Is that book similar in structure to the book "The Design of the Unix Operating System" by Maurice Bach? (or is it Design and Implementation of ... don't remember - had read it some years ago).

Came here to say this. Fantastic book for self-learners.
