With the Kindle version and reading it on Nexus 7 with latest Kindle app, most of the hilighted text are jumbled up. For example, on page 27 Chapter on Installation, the first of text is:

"access the Internet through an HTTP and/or

network interface, you..."

Essentially, it appears wherever there are highlighted text the formatting has gone astray.

So, for the Kindle version, this get a low mark.

25 October 2012: Update.
With the updated Kindle Reader (3.7.0.108) on the Android Nexus 7 the text and layout are now formatted corrected. Updated rating to reflect this.

While I am familiar with several linux operating system, Arch is a real challenge to the non-computer specialist with a steep learning curve just to get it installed. Frankly, this book adds little to guides that can be found by googling 'Arch' and 'install'. It also stops well short of a detailing a GUI setup which I suspect most Arch users will want at some point.

This has to be one of the best handbooks for Arch Linux in print today. I have found it quite difficult to find any other book about Arch Linux, unless you get a book about Linux in general.
