Title: The UNIX Programming Environment
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Authors: Brian W. Kernighan, Rob Pike
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Classic and still the best introduction Unix

I can't believe the reviewer who gave two stars to this book saying it's "outdated". Yes, it's dated. Yes, it doesn't tell you about Linux and FreeBSD and GNOME and KDE. But it's still absolutely the best introduction to the Unix *Programming* environment. Whatever else it is, Unix is a programmer's delight. And this book is the best companion you can have to explore Unix.
The book covers a lot of territory. Starting with a good introduction to the Unix command line, it covers Unix tools like sed and awk, shell scripting, system programming with C. It even covers lex and yacc. Never mind, the books age - it's still the best computing book I've ever read and I will gladly recommend it for any one new to Unix.
The authors' writing style is excellent. There is a certain amount of dry humor that I grew to appreciate in subsequent readings. For example, about AWK's name, the commentary dryly says "naming the program after the authors' names shows a certain poverty of imagination"! Remember that Brian Kernighan (one of the book authors) is one of the creator's of AWK. Go and buy this book. NOW.

Required Reading for UCLA Extensions Class

I am teaching a course at UCLA Extension's Graphic Arts Department called "Mastering Fine Art Printing" and this is THE textbook that we use. With the release of this book, I now have a solid reference point for the material that I present in the course. I'm glad that Johnson has included the many facets of fine art printing because so many people have no idea that a revolution is taking place in the fine art community.
This book provides a great starting for both beginning and advanced printmakers. Johnson exhaustive research and insight make this book a must have for anyone wanting to take their fine art printmaking to the next level. There is plenty of practical information that is easy to follow and will definately help your abiltiy to create great prints.
