Books about shells in general:

  • Shell Scripting Recipes - Not strictly a book about zsh; it covers advanced shellscripting.
  • UNIX Shell Programming - Covers POSIX/SUSv3 Shell programming and related information.
  • Mastering UNIX Shell Scripting - This book deals with ksh programming. zsh originally tried to work a lot like ksh, so this is useful.
  • Beginning Shell Scripting - Mainly covers Bourne Shell scripting, but also discusses special features of ksh, bash and csh *ungh* :-)
  • Linux-UNIX Shells - Discusses Bourne-, Korn- and C shell, bash and tcsh. This is a book is written in German.
  • Learning the Korn Shell - Well, a book about ksh. Again, as zsh originally tried to follow ksh's ways, this book could be interesting for zsh users, too.
  • Classic Shell Scripting - As the name suggests, classic shell scripting is the topic here. This books tries to tell the reader about common traps, as well.
