This book addresses Symbian OS in a large context, take chapter 5 for example, it first talks about basic concepts of process scheduling, then goes to scheduling strategies such FCFS, SJF, round-robin, priority, multiple-queuing and real-time, then it covers scheduling in Linux and microkernel architecture, finally it covers scheduling in Symbian OS within one page.It's broad but a little bit shallow. It also lacks coverage of device driver, overall a very good book for casual reading.
