Review: The Design of the Unix Operating SystemUser Review - Terry Wang - Goodreads
Classic, I got it from an ex Sun employee. It is quite old (1986) but really helpful to understand how Unix and Linux Operating Systems work. Especially the chapters about processes (Chapter 4 - 8) and Memory Management. Worth reading if you are interested in Linux/Unix internals. Read full review
