abs primer?

i just bled and flushed my abs on my '04kgt. i followed the instructions off this site, and everything went well. what occurred to me is i know nothing about the workings of abs. can someone dumb it down and explain the linear movement of fluid from pedal to pistons on wheels? 3 resorvoirs, a control unit..............all too complicated to figure out. clymer is no help. anyone?
