The Art of Unix Programming
The author utilizes a comparative approach to explaining Unix by contrasting it to Microsoft Windows, Mac OS and other operating systems. The book also includes quotations and comments from influential Unix programmers and wizards.
The major disadvantage of the book is the excessive fawning of Unix idiosyncrasies and the lack of understanding of the author of other OS architectures. This is particularly obvious in the OS comparisons chapter.
