Dated now, but still the definitive book on UNIX socket programming. I can't think of a better book on the subject.

Possibly the best UNIX book I ever read and one of the best tech books ever. I don't know how I could have made it without it.

Think I bought this to make myself feel clever, but I've ended up just using it to prop up my monitor.

This is a serious, genuine, OMG sort of update. It came out in 2013, and is current with the way the world works today (well, the world of computing, at least). It makes me regret being retired.

Library Thing believes that this book is the same as the previous versions, but trust me, it isn't. It's a dramatic change even from the second edition (which Stephen Rago also updated), and light years away from the first edition. The format was the same for all three, but some of the old information is gone (STREAMS is a notable example), and the reference operating systems match the current reality.

It's an excellent book, and if you're currently working in the field, you should get this edition.
