It.It more about his political ideology.

2.Unix Concepts And Applications - By Sumitabha Das : This is the first book , any Unix enthusiast would read and would re read and re read even after 10 years of first reading it.I wont say much about it as I still read it when I am confused.And Yes A file is File is a File.
