5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to become a command line expert, 2 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting Bible (Paperback)
I bought this after a glowing recommendation from one of my friends. This book has everything you need to become an expert using the command line. Let me start by saying that I am not an expert, indeed when I bought this book I was very much a novice. However the book takes you through tasks in a logical order and in a way that is interesting. The book goes through all the commands most of us will ever need. Whilst it is not one to take on holiday, or to sit beside the fire with a drink in your hand, it is by far and away the best command line book I have used.

The book even splits up the different areas of Linux eg comparing the differences between KDE, Gnome and Xfce. It is also a great quick reference book, with an extended A-Z and a brilliantly broken down contents section at the start.

Overall an excellent book that takes you in-depth to the command line world, not just skimming the surface. Not recommended for the casual user that just intends to type some documents and surf the net. However it is recommended for anybody that has a serious interest in learning the Linux command line, especially those who wish to become power users.
