5.0 out of 5 stars Really excellent, 16 April 2007
By 
Stephen Handley (Nottingham, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: UNIX For Dummies: Quick Reference, 4th Edition (Paperback)
Not knowing much about unix and having recently moved into a unix environment, I was after a reference book that would allow me to get up to speed quickly.

This book has done precisely that. I wasn't after yards and yards of pros, just a reference for the various commands and switches. I would recommend it to anyone in a similar situation to myself. It's compact, comprehensive and cheap. What more could you want?

4.0 out of 5 stars nice for newbies to *nix, 6 May 2009
This review is from: UNIX For Dummies: Quick Reference, 4th Edition (Paperback)
Great little quick reference for those unfamiliar with *nix systems who are suddenly required to use such systems *as end users*.
Not for those who want to learn how to administer a *nix system or network - this is strictly an entry level book.
Was slightly disappointed personally, since I was hoping for a little more depth - but if you are never ever going to be root, it's just fine and probably the friendliest introduction you'll find out there.
