Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment, by Richard Stevens. It says advanced, but if you know enough C to delve into low level system programming, it's a good choice.

If you're looking for something more general, go with the wrox book.

Linux Device Drivers, published by O'Reilly, gives much more information about Linux than the name implies. This is a great book for programming in Linux if you already understand C/C++.
