The inventors of Unix envisioned information technology as a fluid composition of interconnected operations. Maybe some parts are too long to be read at one. I started programming on a Unix system in with only the V6 documentation some written by Kernighan and the source code to learn from. This book show exactly why. It’s actually quite awesome to see how a book which is almost as old as I am dated ’84 can still be relevant today, certainly if you keep into account that this book is covering a topic in one of the fastest evolving disciplines today.

It allowed me to understand how unix is meant to be. This book, more than any other, taught me to think the way a programmer thinks. If you need a break from widgets, sliders, plugins, social networking, mobile phone apps, and all the rest that comes with enacting our hyperconnected world, then take a look at this book. Amazingly powerful and beautiful.
Most of the treatment is based on reading, writing, and revising examples, rather than on mere statement of rules. Command shells are demonstrated.

This is the third time I have read the book and I found it just as useful and illuminating as the first time. The C programming language, as well as Awk are described. This book is a stunning example. It contains tutorial introduction to get new users started as soon as possible, separate chapters on each major feature, and a reference manual. Sadly, although Unix encourages pillage, there are no civilians to ravage, and no vanquished skulls to pile into pyramids.
Maybe in the next version. This book is nearest place from the source of UNIX, so, full of anecdotes lives here.
