This is an excellent book for learning systems programming on Linux/Unix if you have a reading knowledge of the C programming language.

The author is the maintainer of Linux man-pages(which documents the Linux kernel and glibc APIS) and hence has a deep knowledge of the internal workings of Linux.
In this book, the author covers the whole gamut of Linux/Unix in 1556 pages. Yes, this book is huge but it will really serve your purposes if you are working or plan to work on Linux/Unix. The author covers all the system calls with extreme detail giving plenty of examples after explaining the concepts.     
This book is highly recommended for those who want to learn systems programming on Linux/Unix. You can use it both for learning concepts and also as a reference.
