I chose this book after some time researching Ubuntu books. I liked the way the book started with the philosophy behind Ubuntu, how it grew from Debian, Linux, what it is today and what it may become tomorrow. The cover was attractive as was the format of the material. The chapters are easy to read and implement. Not all little hiccups are covered but the Ubuntu journey is like that. You make progress never the less. The photos of screens are of poor quality but i like the way the book is written. There are sections for the Beginner, intermediate and the advanced who are on the path to Ubuntu.
I would recommend it to my friends. I did not feel the need for another book. I rate it 4.75/ 5.00
I like it and the Operating System too but the OS needs a little work annoyingly, well work involving improvements that is, lol.
The book is of a nice size too its not overly huge and not built like a door stop the the Hulk's house like most computing books are?!
Would have like a little more in depth stuff about Linux but I bought another book for that.
