2.0 out of 5 stars Basically just the wiki November 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Arch already has fantastic documentation on the wiki. A lot of the sentences were taken verbatim from there.
If you really don't know what you're doing it's a good beginner book, (but then again why would a beginner be using arch linux?)

I was hoping to find something more than what is already freely available in the wiki.

3.0 out of 5 stars Replica of online guide ... September 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This publications takes us through the extremely technical installation of Arch Linux, which for most people proves a rather cumbersome process. The book doesn't get 4 or 5 stars mostly because it's a replica of an online guide; the author mentions this himself and you get little extra in terms of pedagogical insights. Thus, I recommend the online guide on the community homepage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok - but too many references to the wiki June 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Basically I need a handbook on Arch, on how to set up a box when I have no access to the net, and thus no wiki to mull over.
