i bought this book hoping that it would delve in to the code of the different filesystems. instead it breifly goes over how to use the filesystems and some of they main features, little more than a generic write up. this book, might be useful to someone who has money to waste and doesn't really know that much about filesystems but to few others.

Good book for hackers
I bought this book expecting to get a step-by-step description of what is a file system and how Linux implements them. I ended up liking this book because it describes the most important file systems in Linux and how they are structured. After reading this book you sit down and modify an existing file system for your own particular needs or write your own file system from scratch. If you are a serious Linux hackers, this book is worth its money.

Only useful if writing one...
This book had a lot of interesting information about how the internals of Linux file systems, but was pretty useless in explaining how to actually use them for anything. It was also really hard to read and had a lot of stuff that you could find anywhere on the web. If you want to write a filesystem this book might be useful. If you just want information or actually want to use an advanced Linux file system, get William Von Hagen's "Linux Filesystems."
