A good start could be "Linux Kernel in a Nutshell" (freely available): http://www.kroah.com/lkn/

We simply suggest some good reading as you asked.

Obviously it is encouragement If everyone has given you a link or a book to read in order to learn the exact question in which you asked. Wether or not you should is totally up to you but why ask in the 1st place if your not interested . . . ?

Perhaps this is bigger than you imagine. The kernel has more than 15 million lines of code - possibly way more by now.
No way to condense that to a short pdf.
