Long time nixers
We concluded the TUPE book on our book club. And we can prepare for the next book.

In this thread, let's comment what we thought on the last book, what we thought on the last book club thread, and recommend the book for the next book club thread. Also, if you have any recommendation on how we can improve the book club, please comment in this thread.

I have some recommendations:
  • The Art of UNIX Programming.
  • Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment (a tough book, very terse, dense on information and also very long).
  • Introduction to Operating Systems Abstractions Using Plan 9 (A good introductory book on plan 9, but it is to plan 9 what TUPE is to UNIX, so it may be repetitive for those who read TUPE).
  • The UNIX Haters Handbook (it is a compilation of mails to a mailing list, I don't know if this kind of reading appeals to everyone).
  • The Design of the UNIX Operating System.
