    I want to get a good book to learn more about the innards of OS X. I've found two that are supposed to be very good : Mac OS X Bible (SL edition) and David Pogue's OS X - The missing manual (also SL edition).

    I want to learn more about terminal commands etc. So which one of these is the best ?

    The most indepth and complete book that I know of is Mac OSX Internals. The author's website for the book and many articles regarding OSX can be found here:

    Thanks for the link but I think that book goes a bit too far, more for programmers.
    I'm just looking to learn the basics of OS X's terminal.
