If you can only buy one book on unix network programming, make it this one! It is well worth the price! Richard Stevens was one of the authorative authors on programming in the unix environment. His writting style is a little on the dry side, but the book is very clear and concise. For subjects that are off-topic for the book, but Stevens thinks you might be interested in, he included references to his other books. In my opinion, this book deserves three thumbs up! This review is for the second edition
I personally love the stuff in this book although the author's writing style is quite boring. I recommend, however, the first edition of this book if you're just starting UNIX networking. In this second edition, the author expects readers to know some of the basic stuff.

What the book has is pretty much ALL you need to know, in my opinion, about UNIX network programming. Other advanced conecepts not covered in this book will be easily understood if you know the materials in this book.

I have both editions and have read both of them. I often find myself, however, using the first edition for reference. For this odd(?) reason, I'm rating it 9 out of 10. This review is for the second edition
This is an EXCELLENT book on UNIX Network Programming. The only complaint is the authors use of his own "wrappers" to detect errors. He has his own wrapped routines that you have to keep looking back at to see how they work. If you want to do network programming in a UNIX environment then this is the book you need. This review is for the second edition
