Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't let the subtitle fool you: there's very little about the OS internals here. It's just a good book for home users switching from another OS to Linux/Unix, nothing more. With that in mind, you can still appreciate Mr. Ward's way of approaching the subject: clear and concise with just a few examples, but straight to the point. All considered a very good book, but not what I had in mind by reading the subtitle.

Format: Paperback
The subtitle is slightly misleading as you don't need to be a superuser to get full value from this book. Very well written and structured. Clear, concise, no waffle. A handy book to keep by the PC.

I bought this book a couple of years ago and own many other linux books (from administrator stuff to kernel hacking books).
This book however has a special place in my heart !
Its amazing the number of times even googling didn't helped but this did.
Well written, with just the right amount of detail and a touch more (just in case!).
It really deserves 5 stars except for the price!
If you buy a used version then you get SUPERB value.
