Some tech books you read just to get through and get the info.

But the best tech books you slow down so you can absorb the story.
That's what I'm doing right now with, The Linux Programming Interface by Michael Kerrisk[^]

It is a fantastic book. It builds the story of Linux Programming starting out with some history of Unix, C, GNU, etc. Really great.

The author is also maintainer of Linux man-pages so he knows exactly what he is talking about.
This is one of those books that will last, because it has great breadth and depth.

Have any of you read it?
