    Note that the latest version of Love's book (third edition) came out in July 2010, whereas Bovet's book (also third edition) came out in November 2005, and a lot has happened with Linux kernels since 2005. Still, I'd recommend both of them if you are serious about learning the inner workings for the Linux kernel. I noticed too that both are available in a Kindle edition at Amazon if you want to save some money.
