The book is a great introduction to system design issues that are only taught at few courses in few universities. I have not seen the discussion of naming in such detail and simple terms anywhere, The authors are very well respected professors at MIT and have experience in operating systems and computer system since its early days.
I highly recommend this book to any hardware or software student or professional engnineer. Actually, I can see the authors' attempt to make it a "clear, structured" read, but they failed miserably.
One of the most unpleasant technology books I had to deal with.
At first it produces an impression of a well structured work with "what's ahead, how this chapter is organized, how that" - but that is all the authors are good at in terms of writing - organizing their outline.
They fail terribly at being clear and easy on the reader. Two stars only for a lot of italicized words definitions - good idea, but otherwise wanted to give it just one star. I feel like the content is decent, It is hard to absorb all the information without being hands on.
Some of the topics discussed in this book were truly helpful to my knowledge of systems design - the emphasis on Modularity, for instance, has instilled in me the importance of designing code so that I don't end up with a pile of spaghetti.
I personally think that the book would be so much more helpful to the CS student if it offered some practice problems that actually have to do with code. Or else you're simply reading material that'll be too difficult to retain afterwards.
I understand that these authors may be "living legends" in their fields - the text absolutely conveys a superior knowledge of the subject. However, the information is poorly organized and, overall, poorly conveyed. The reading is extremely dense and difficult to follow. While information density is never a bad thing - dissecting vast knowledge that is organized and described poorly is a terrible exercise in frustration.
In the creation of this text, the authors set themselves up for a magnificent challenge: I believe the authors ultimately failed this challenge. As a student, attempting to extract information from this book is extremely frustrating.
Nearly every, single sentence reads somewhat like a vocabulary exercise - only the vocabulary and language is entirely relative to other densely worded and entirely relative bits of information within the text.
If the authors intended this book to be stored within a piece of RAM and read by a machine I'm sure the text would be entirely useful. Unfortunately, this book is intended for human beings to construct a framework of knowledge. We do so by connecting new information with frameworks already established in reality. This text fails miserably to serve that purpose.
I do not wish to disrespect the authors' authority on the subject, nor do I wish to undermine their writing ability. Nevertheless, after quickly realizing complete frustration with this text I feel compelled, as well as obligated, to share my experience with it. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Overall the content is sub-par at best.
The E-book version contains no page numbers and is not set-up in any page-like format. Also makes it difficult to "turn to page " in class when your professor has the text and the e-book does not have any way to tell you where page is to any degree of accuracy. The book is not organized well. While the goal is to teach abstractions, too few and well thought out examples bring the abstractions back down to real world situations, thus the intrinsic value of an abstraction is not conveyed.
There are also significant typos in the exercises that make some unsolvable. The order of events are reversed in some of these exercises, wherein the whole point of the exercise is lost and there is no answer. See all 11 reviews.
