This review is from: Linux Pocket Guide (Pocket Guide: Essential Commands) (Paperback)
I don't envy Mr Barrett's task with this book. Everybody has a slightly different wishlist of commands to go in a book like this; it's impossible to please everybody. That said, I think he's got it about as close to perfection as possible. This book has an incredible amount of useful info in a usefully small volume. If like me you can normally remember the command, but always struggle to remember the right option (which one do you add to TAR for BZ2 files?) this book is a godsend.
