Since this book is freely available in PDF, I would advise you to read it.
It is out-dated (in sense you won't compile snippets as is) but it is well
written, and pleasant to read.
The version 4 was scheduled for dec 2015 iirc, but is now annonced for nov 2017
on O'Reilly's website.

That's an interesting question, I'm willing to know the opinion of
other members of kernelnewbies on those books, and others they would recommand.
