Needs polishing, but good overall,

This review is from: Linux For Dummies (Paperback)
Overall, Linux for Dummies is an excellent book. I would not recommend it as a reference, but it excellent for the first timer. I had no experience with linux whatsoever, but I was an avid computer user, and I had only a few small problems. The book needs to follow the installation more closely, as some parts were left out. However, because I had at least minimal knowledge about computers in general, I was able to figure it ok just fine. When you go to get X-Windows running, get Linux Unleashed or Linux in Nutshell (or both:) as well, just for reference.
