"Linux System Programming should be on the bookshelf of anyone who is serious about writing Linux applications, or just wants to know to improve their programming skills. Robert has created an essential resource for professional Linux programmers."
"Linux System Programming is an essential reference for any Linux developer, veteran and novice alike. With great code samples and a witty style, you won't want to put it down."
"This is a very well written book that every Linux Systems Programmer should have within arm's length."
"This highly readable book is an excellent introduction to both Linux and Linux system programming for a sysadmin or non-linux programmer. It also contains a valuable appendix on GCC extensions to the C standards. The focus is on user-space programming in C on Linux, with extensive discussion of the underlying kernel structures. The coverage includes files/process management/IPC/threading and time measurement. There is a discussion on processor affinity and real time systems which are not covered in other books I've read."

"I picked up a copy of Linux System Programming to help me understand how to directly interact with the Linux kernel and from that, use these skills to help with reverse-engineering malware. While my expectations weren't exceeded by any means, the book could have been so much more." Full Review >
