Michael W. Lucas is a network/security engineer who keeps getting stuck with network problems nobody else wants to touch. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Absolute FreeBSD, Absolute OpenBSD, Network Flow Analysis, Cisco Routers for the Desperate, and PGP & GPG, all from No Starch Press.
The format of the book is organized and easy to follow.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone considering not only OpenBSD as an OS, but also for those who are looking into the other BSDs as an OS.
I hope this doesn't need to be said, but I will say it anyway, read this book while you are using OpenBSD.
great book filled with useful, informative and practical information written by an author who not only educates but entertains. Read morePublished 12 days ago by jborf
A good book on one of the safest OS-es out there. Good examples and a good aid for people more versed in other *nix-like OS-es (Linux, Solaris).Published 6 months ago by John Doe

Good book. Not outdated.
I wish I would have gotten this book sooner. It would have saved me... days of try, test, fail.

This book is well written and makes not only an excellent overview of OpenBSD's capabilities, but also gives one enough details and examples on how to implement those capabilities.Published 12 months ago by James M. Pothering
I bought this book the first time when it covered OpenBSD 3.6-3.7. I liked the author's writing style and his humor added a good depth to what can be a boring subject. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Amazon Customer
