A really excellent essay

In the Beginning was the Command Line is an excellent essay that I tend to encourage all of my friends to read. In fact, I tend to read bits of it out loud to them.

It is not completely true, and parts of it are dated. But it combines humor, metaphor and careful explanations in a way that's very informative and entertaining at the same time.

It is available in book form from Amazon.
