The books by W Richard Stevens are excellent. TCP/IP Illustrated vol 1
is still mostly true despite the age. Vol 2 is interesting from the
perspective of studying how BSD implemented TCP/IP.

"Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment" should be read by all
*nix programmers. It is not all relevent as higher level languages and
APIs are generally easier to use. However it does give a good
understand of how applications should be written for *nix.
