I'm learning from Tata McGraw hill publication 'UNIX Concepts and Applications' by Sumitabha Das. I have found it very informational.

Hi Sai Vikas,

Welcome to CodeRanch!

If you are looking for a book simply for commands, then as mentioned by Vinod Vijay, Sumitabha Das' book is really good one.

But if you are looking at shell scripting, then there are numerous other books. I've not worked with shell scripting much (and for most of the issue, I've referred internet), so I cannot recommend a book here, but I've heard good reviews about books by O'reilly publication.

And if you are looking for a book from operating system design perspective, then look no further than to book by Maurice Bach.

I hope this helps.

I think anyone interested in UNIX/LINUX should have a look at this comprehensive Reading List:-


http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/Reading-List-HOWTO/index.html

From it:-

The Art of Unix Programming, Edited by Eric S. Raymond, 2003, ISBN 0-131-42901-9, Addison-Wesley, 512pp..

The book on how to think like a Unix expert. Browseable HTML and ordering info live here.

My absolute two most-used books are Programming Perl and Perl Cookbook both from O'Reilly. Programming Perl is in its 3rd edition now.
