I have to say that although most of the work that I do does not relate
to device drivers. I find myself relying on the device driver book more
than I do the "Understanding the Linux Kernel" book. It is really hard
for me to explain why. It just seems like I find what I need to know in
the device drivers book but not in the Kernel book. 

I consider the device drivers book to be far superior and I only really
use the Kernel book when what I need to know is distinctly not covered
in the Device Driver book.

If you buy the book on the used market just make sure that you get the
2nd edition.
