For a domain specific book, I can't recommend Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment enough. It not only helped me understand standard *NIX facilities, but it has great programming practices throughout. For a general programming practices book, I recently picked up and love The Practice of Programming. I wish I had seen the book when it was published in 1999. Each chapter ends with a "Suplimentary Reading" section that has promising titles.

[Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
[marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
[marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
[LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
