I bought this book from the prags in print. Its the perfect way to get started with tmux, and it serves as a brilliant guide to have on hand when you need to look up those lesser used commands. I paid $20 for it, so its WELL WORTH the lesser digital cost!

Great intro to Tmux 12 Nov. 2012
By t - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
If you want to try Tmux, you want this book. You can easily work though it in a day, and it's worth it. I read this about 8 months ago while still new to Tmux and most of the lines in my current config file were added while reading it and haven't changed. It's more accessible and fun to read than a man page, but it's short enough that it doesn't waste your time or feel like a chore.

tmux changed how I develop 12 Nov. 2012
By Jon Kinney - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Before tmux I used Textmate or Sublime Text 2 to create web applications. I had Visor to flip my console open and it was a decent workflow. However, after reading this book and setting up my tmux environment, I've never been happier or more productive when coding. If you spend a portion of your day in Vim (MacVim or otherwise) and/or use the console a lot, then definitely check out this book!

Clear, Well Written, and Easy to Understand 7 Mar. 2013
By Nathanial Dickson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Let's face it, terminal multiplexing isn't an entry level topic. But this book makes it easy and fun to get yourself all set up with scripted multiple-pane windows in multi-window sessions, and furthermore, you'll actually know what all that means. Once you finish this book (which should take you about a day) you'll be able to use this knowledge to customize and tweak your workspace in ways that aren't included in the book. If you work on the command line for any significant portion of your time you owe it to yourself to use tmux and the author's suggestions to save time and work as fast as you think.

If buying this makes you try tmux for real, it's worth it 23 July 2014
By Stefan Pettersson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a thin book, open a terminal and page through it while trying out tmux. Within two hours, you'll either fall in love or never use tmux again.

Most of the information in the book is easily found online in various HOWTOs but if you've never gotten time to sit down with it, buying this book might encourage you.

To be fair, Hogan includes descriptions on "advanced usage" like scripting tmux environments which might not be as readily available. However, I think the real value of the book is for pushing those who've never tried tmux (or screen) over the edge.

Good introduction to tmux 18 Mar. 2013
By "has207" - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The book is short and to the point. It covers all the topics you're likely to care about if you're just starting out using tmux, including working with sessions, windows and panes, copying text and scrolling through the buffers, as well as building up an effective config file. I'm taking a star off for drop in editing quality in the final sections, but for $7 it's a good deal and worth buying over the freely available material online.
