I was lucky to be able to find supplementary material from the library to get me through the class - this was pretty inadequate.
The book also does not explain some things that should be explained in the begining of the book. Usually they will have something that says "see chapter 5 for more details on -----" but not always the case, especially the email talk. They talk about emails and perusing email in early chapters but it isnt until 220 pages into the book that you actually find anything differently. I needed this book for a class in college, really is not that good. I would suggest getting another book as well as this one, possibly about shell commands. I'll update this later if I find one. The humor is very dry and pretentious to say the least, reddit users would have a ball tearing this guy to shreds.
Honestly I learned a lot with this book but I also put 20+ hours in doing so with many revisitations. This book wouldnt be bad as a reference but does not do justice as a introductory "quickstart"
Also reading the other person's review - if this book is nearly identical to the previous version you'd be better off getting the previous version. what they may have added was the indexes at the end (which are actually helpful).
