Need a suggestion on UNIX Books

Hi All,

Request you to suggest any other book as of year 2013. The below thread is of year 2000 and I have not found the books mentioned in the link below.

Which Unix Certification is the most needed these days?

Or please share any updated thread is there on this.

Thanks and regards,
Saptarshi.

Even though it is not a book targeted at any certification, I've found it the most useful book to learn Linux from scratch and as a reference for a seasoned Linux user / sysadmin: The Linux Command Line. Last edition is dated a couple of weeks ago. Good luck!

Thank you gacanepa. Actually as per that old thread link, Neo / PxT suggested for N/W programming books to become a great Unix person. So I tried to search Rich Stevens books and I'm confused with the below book currently available:

Unix Network ProgrammingThe Sockets And Networking API (volume - 1) 3rd Edition 3rd Edition by Stevens W. Richard, Rudoff M. Andrew, Fenner Bill (Publisher: Prentice-Hall (2010))
Link: Unix Network ProgrammingThe Sockets And Networking API (volume - 1) 3rd Edition 3rd Edition - Buy Unix Network ProgrammingThe Sockets And Networking API (volume - 1) 3rd Edition 3rd Edition by Stevens W. Richard|Author; Rudoff M. Andrew|Author; Fenne

So I want to be sure if I can go for this book. Smilie

Cheers,
Saps.

Great! Just to clarify, from the link that I sent you can download the latest version of The Linux Command Line, which was released less than a month ago.

The main question is more what are you looking for? UNIX, or system administration?
For Unix I keep my old books and look at them when lost, at work in my drawer I have the french translation of the Kernigan / Pike " the Unix Programmin Environment"...
