5.0 out of 5 stars awesome book for systems programming, November 10, 2006
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment (2nd Edition) (Hardcover)
This book is literally saving me right now in an Introduction to Operating Systems class I'm taking. We have projects to complete in the UNIX envrionment and the fact that this book gives you every real code example you could possibly need for all levels of systems programming is GOLD. It's laid out in a very straightforward way, has tons of code examples, and is overall awesome. Highly recommend if you're just getting into systems programming on your own, or as a school reference book.
