An indispensable ready reference
on 2 November 2012
This little book is great for new (like myself) and experienced (I presume) Linux users alike. You can read some of the early sections as a standalone introduction to Linux commands if you want, but its real strengths lie in looking up terminal commands - online articles or forum posts will often instruct you to type something in the terminal and hit Enter, without explaining what the command means or describing the numerous options and what they're for. Sometimes you can't even find that sort of info from online Linux help pages, and in those cases this book is indispensable. To illustrate this, I lent this book to a friend two weeks ago and in that time I've found myself wishing I still had it about half a dozen times!
