UNIX: A History and a Memoir
Wednesday, 23 October 2019

Written for the 50th anniversary of Unix, this book covers the fascinating story of how Unix began and how it took over the world. Author Brian Kernighan, a member of the original group of Unix developers and the creator of several fundamental Unix programs, has produced an account that is part history and part memoir explaining what Unix is, how it came about, and why it matters. Accessible to non-specialists, the book is written for anyone with an interest in computing or the history of inventions.
