Operating Systems: Four Easy Pieces
Free online OS book from Remzi H. Arpaci-Dusseau and Andrea C. Arpaci-Dusseau.

"The book is centered around four conceptual pieces: virtualization, concurrency, persistence, and distribution. In understanding the conceptual, you will also learn the practical, including how an operating system does things like schedule the CPU, manage memory, store files persistently, and even work in a distributed environment where there are many computers and not just one. Lots of fun stuff!"
