Learning Unix Networking through Richard Stevens

I feel like I’ve been living under a rock for never hearing anything about Richard Stevens before.

Sadly he passed away back in 1999 but he did wrote some of the best books on network programming.  I also been browsing his website, kohala.com, there is still great information worth digging out.

I picked up four of his books, you can find them on amazon pretty cheap.  They all look like amazing reads.

This was a pretty good read
