Product Description

Review

Bottom line: no serious Unix user and no serious newcomer intending to become proficient in Unix should be without this book. -- Jeffrey McPheeters, MyMac,com, Feb 2003

It's a bit expensive, but if you want to use the Unix underpinnings of Mac OS X, the time you save will more than pay for this excellent book. -- Kirk McElhearn, atpm.com

Just about anyone who's comfortable with Linux or Unix basics would benefit from 'Unix Power Tools. -- Dee-Ann LeBlanc, LinuxPlanet, August 2002

Format: Paperback
There isn't a single unix book better than this, but if you are an unix adminstrator like the previous guy who review the book, you're looking at the wrong book. This book has earned it's book title with pride.
I have had the book for over 5 years, i still refer to it now and again, i am a developer and have found that I was not leveraging the full potential for the operating system, however this book puts me back on track. I have had 3 years of unix exp. before buying the book most of the elementary thing i didn't need and other stuff was not appealing at first, I expected more, but there is more just that i didn't know until I had more commercial experience.

If you work on *nix os command line. This is seriously the book you need. It will teach you everything except networking. The chapters on vi and awk are really very good. This book might be more expensive than most, but it is really a number of great books rolled into one. I bought this years ago and bought it again as an ebook (for reference).

This is such a great book, full of tips and tricks for using the UNIX operating system.
The best thing about it is that every aspect is covered in an easy to understand and approachable manner. Worth every penny.
