You should at least take the time to read a ng just after you post
a question!  I'll try a CC: and cross my fingers.

Anyway, a personal fave of mine is "Advanced Unix Programming"
by Marc J. Rochkind ISBN 0-13-011800-1

It's possibly a little outdated now, (my copy was published in 1985)
but it covers the basics beautifully and in an entertaining way.

It's a fairly thin book by computer book standards.  I think of it
as the third in a classic trilogy; the first two being
        The C Programming Language by Kernighan and Ritchie
and
        The Unix Programming Environment by Kernighan and Pike.

Ahh and I bet you still call a register, an accumulator:)  But seriously,
I have both Rochkind and Stevens and I have never reference Rochkind.

Once you graduate from Advanced Unix Programming, a book I highly recommend
is Unix Internals by Vahalia.

hell yeah!  this book is outstanding.  (although not really about unix
programming, unless you code kernels)
