Nothing gawk-y About It
Arnold Robbins is an Atlanta native, currently living is Israel. He is a happy husband, and the proud father of four wonderful children. He works as a professional software engineer and technical author. In his non-copious spare time, he is also an amateur Talmudist, both Babylonian and Jerusalem. As a long-time volunteer for the GNU project, he has been the maintainer of GAWK (GNU Awk) for many years. Arnold was on the balloting committee for the original POSIX Shell and Utilities standard in the early 1990s and helped to shape the POSIX standard for awk (and a few other things).
Besides Linux Programming by Example: The Fundamentals, Arnold is the author or co-author of a number of Unix-related books from O'Reilly Media Inc., including (but not limited to) Unix In A Nutshell, Effective awk Programming, Learning the vi Editor, Classic Shell Scripting, and the GDB and vi Pocket References.
One of these days he hopes to actually put some content on his website, www.skeeve.com, and to create an AWK-oriented website.
