    The Unix Programming Environment by Kernighan (you've probably heard of him!) and Pike is excellent. This will give you a strong foundation in all things Unix.

    I would also recommend some books from the O'Reilly series:
    • Learning the bash Shell: Unix Shell Programming by Newham - I haven't read this one but I like the series and it sounds like an ideal topic
    • sed & awk (2nd Edition) by Dougherty
    • Learning the vi and Vim Editors by Robbins, Hannah, and Lamb


    Some of these might be a little heavier on the scripting side rather than C/C++ but I think they will help if you're going to use Unix/Linux regularly.

    Good luck!
