This review is from: Beginning Ubuntu Linux: From Novice to Professional 3rd Edition Book/DVD Package (Books for Professionals by Professionals) (Paperback)
Wow! What a fantastic book. Usually, computer books are either written by Idiots (sorry, should that be for Idiots as in, "The Idiot's Guide to Whatever") or alternatively they waffle on in 'techno-babble' and lose me by page 25. This book is different. It takes each stage of getting Ubuntu Linux up and running and using all the various programs - one chapter per stage.
It is very easy to read and straightforward to understand yet powerful in the techniques it teaches. I have read a lot of computer books over the years and without doubt ... this is quite simply the best of the bunch.
If you have mastered the basics of using a computer then you can easily learn Ubuntu Linux with this book (and then show off to your friends!).
