Advanced Linux Programming
Advanced Linux Programming is divided into two parts. The first covers generic UNIX system services, but with a particular eye towards Linux specific information. This portion of the book will be of use even to advanced programmers who have worked with other Linux systems since it will cover Linux specific details and differences. For programmers without UNIX experience, it will be even more valuable.The second section covers material that is entirely Linux specific. These are truly advanced topics, and are the techniques that the gurus use to build great applications. While this book will focus mostly on the Application Programming Interface (API) provided by the Linux kernel and the C library, a preliminary introduction to the development tools available will allow all who purchase the book to make immediate use of Linux.

LibraryThing ReviewUser Review - LibraryThing
Good, if somewhat flawed, introduction to "advanced" systems/application programming in Linux. You should definitely have at least some background in C development before trying to tackle this book. That said, it's not really that advanced, despite the name. However, it does collect a lot of good information into one place that would otherwise require tracking down lots of how-tos, tutorials, manpages, etc. to get the full picture. Not to say it presents the full picture -- but for the concise size of the book, it does a pretty good job.
