It's a big book :) very informative and approachable unlike the majority of Linux books out there you will not be bored to tears when reading this. Content is plenty and covers a diverse range of topics absolutely ideal if you are new to Linux and want to get hands on.

Please be advised though the book focuses more on the red hat derivatives

A fantastic resource Negus has done a good job! I will be buying future editions

If you want to learn more about administration and setting up securing server related stuff this book is awesome :)

Whilst concerning Linux you can get everything you want online for free in terms of tutorials, this book does the (almost) impossible and helps people who want to learn Linux in a structured way. Especially when coming from Windows, this book can be a godsend.

5 Stars on this updated publication, as a retired person it was with trepidation that I invested in any book re: 'Linux' due to reduced finances, however I settled on this book for my interest and updating of my PC's Linux Ubuntu distributions.

In short I think it has paid for itself after using only a fraction of the information.

It is an excellent reference book, which shall be used daily.

It's not a useless manual, but,on the one hand, the content is a bit dated, and on the other, the book is neither a reference nor an architectural manual. It's probably good for Windows sysadmins expanding their area of expertise.

Just the best book on the subject and one that is universally recognized as being the best. I learned new things within the first few seconds reading and that always indicates a good purchase. Highly recommended.

This manual was brought as a present for someone who is going to install Linux onto their computer. They tell me it is ideal with plenty of information and have enjoyed reading it. Be warned it is a large heavy manual to hold but has plenty inside.
