When I answer questions on quora about learning Linux

derivative, I still point them at their book: *The Unix Programming
I never got around to reading that book until I'd been a sysadmin for
about twenty years, and it was still a revelation. I thought I'd just
skim through it to sort of check it off the list, but I ended up
learning a lot of great stuff.
That one, and Kernighan and Pike: "The Practice of Programming", are two
books I keep recommending to people.
