Best newbie books I've found
This is the book I've been looking for. It has most of the "need to know" stuff from the man pages along with easy to understand explanations. I'm working my way through it but it makes a great reference too. I've seen too many books that spend way too much time on installation and not enough on operation. This one gets right to the CLI from adding users to setting up dns and fetchmail. If you're looking for a book on xwindows, this ain't it. If you're a newbie looking to learn the command line...get this book.

I agree with other customers who've rated this book very highly for content and presentation of material. I'd give it a 5-star rating if the publishers had used a good editor to get rid of some of the grammatical errors and poor syntax. Why is it the fate of so many computer books (here I would exclude Sobell's books) to be published with writing that perpetrates abuse of the English language???

This is one of those good computer books
Everyone who buys computer books probably has more than a few that cost big bucks, but are somewhere gathering dust. This isn't one of those books. This book is informative and most of all engaging. I enjoy reading it. This is my first review of a book and I buy lots of books. This one is worth recommending.
