There are numerous reference books for Unix, the operating system of choice for the computer-aware. This book, though, brings Unix to life. The rich and storied history of Ken's and Dennis' baby is covered in detail along with pictures of the major players. (Apparently facial hair was a defacto standard. Maybe ZZ Top spent some time in Murray Hill, eh?) Even if you already know Unix, Salus does a wonderful job in helping you *appreciate* this elegant, robust, powerful and selectively-friendly operating system.

UNIX: Live free or die!

I was expecting something along the lines of Steven Levy's "Hackers" book, but this is nothing close to that. It's a extremely dry and dull read - and I find UNIX very interesting. A real shame.
