Unix Literature

There are a number of "must-read" books that evey Unix fellow should know about. I have categorized them into the ones written by the original people behind Unix, and those from the next generation that have an excellent quality close to the original ones, worth reading. Not all these books are directly Unix-related, but the fact is that Unix people and their vision had an impact much bigger than introducing just an operating system... They revolutionized the programming paradigm.

Of course such a list is a matter of taste and personal opinion, but at the same time I believe hardcore Unix people will agree on 100% of the first section and more than 95% of the second.

As time allows, I'll add detailed information about each book here, but I'll start with just the names anyway:

Section 1: From original people

Section 2: From next generation
