Buy this book......but don't try and read it...!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Linux in a Nutshell: a Desktop Quick Reference (Paperback)
Not making sense..?
This book is a superb command reference guide but if you try to read it from cover to cover, you will be soporiphic by page 2 and in a coma by page 3..!
This book is NOT an introduction or getting started guide, for that you should get Running Linux by the same publishers.
This book IS probably the best LINUS investment you will ever make. It covers almost every command in good detail, (but you do need to have at least an idea about the command first! ) It is outstanding value for money, but ONLY as a reference.
The book is clearly and logically presented and there is NO waffle or unnecessary explanation, just the commands, what they do and how to use them.
