This review is from: Linux Pocket Guide (Pocket Guide: Essential Commands) (Paperback)
Excellent little book. Even though it's a reference book, I've read it from start to end. But that's just me, I wanted to try all the commands. I am sure it will get handy in day to day activities. To bad it doesn't have a search functionality :) I am definitely recommend this book to novice/intermediate users. For me, at least, the next step is shell scripting. I think "Classical shell scripting" from O'Reilly.
Even though the book is written with regards to Fedora, I have run all the commands on Ubuntu 11.04 (some packages needed to be installed via "sudo get-install") and it has worked just great.
All in all I definitely recommend this little jewel.
