Linux Device Drivers, 3rd Edition
by J. Corbet, A. Rubini, G. Kroah-Hartman
Publisher: O'Reilly Media, Inc 2005
Number of pages: 636
This is the third edition of Linux Device Drivers. It is, on the surface, a book about writing device drivers for the Linux system.

Linux is an open system; and this book should make it more open and accessible to a larger community of developers.
