About the Author

Sander van Vugt is an independent trainer and consultant, living in the Netherlands and working throughout the European Union. He specializes in Linux and Novell systems, and has worked with both for more than 10 years. Besides being a trainer, he is also an author, having written more than 20 books and hundreds of technical articles. He is a Master Certified Novell Instructor (MCNI) and holds LPIC-1 and -2 certificates, as well as all important Novell certificates.

More About the Author

I'm the author of several books, most of which are about Linux in professional environments. These include "Beginning the Linux Command Line", "Beginning Ubuntu Server Administration" and "Pro Ubuntu Server Administration". Being a Linux user since 1992, the motivation to write books came early. Much of the documentation that you'll find on line (especially in the early days of Linux) was hard to read, so I wanted to translate that information into something that's understandable. I'm like the guy between the developer and the end user. Writing books is not the only way I accomplish this goal. Apart from being an author, I'm a technical trainer as well, delivering Linux courses all over the planet. And if a customer has something interesting, I might be willing to do some consultancy projects as well. In the past few years, most of these have included Linux High Availability and Virtualization. Recently I have developed my skills in SELinux as well and I have helped customers implementing their own custom policies.

Apart from all that, I have a personal life as well. I live in the Netherlands (that's a small country in Europe in case you've never heard of it). I like to travel, and my work allows me to do that often and I like running and photography. I've ran 4 Marathons while writing this and I'm preparing for the Washington Marathon this fall.

Format: Paperback
This book is exactly as it states NOVICE to PROFESSIONAL. It is very well written, as a go-to reference manual, as well as being educational for beginners. The blend of technical "jargon" with the ease of everyday language make this book a must have in your arsenal of linux books.
I do have to disagree with the previous commenter suggesting that the writer write in such a manner that ALL is to understand(its impossible). I believe like most who will purchase this book, that you/I have SOME technical know how and enough interest in Linux Administration to actually have some sort of inkling as to what we will be getting ourselves into. If not, I suggest reading this first "Beginning Ubuntu Linux". I hope this review helps the Novice the Pros and everyone in between.

This author made easy the installation and administration of a network with an Ubuntu server and Windows clients. The book is good for beginners but not not for the dummies, it requires a minimum knowledge about computers. It will be good for future references.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be quite hard to follow through. In addition, he assumes too much and does not get into details. I found impossible to follow, if you are new to Linux administration. Furthermore, some of the examples do not work. He goes somehow deep into theory and not into practical working examples. Some sections are missing details, and overall, after installing your server, the book does not provide an easy-to-follow manual, or an specific introduction to Linux servers. I wish I could have read something like this, before I bought this book. To me, it is a complete waste of time and money. I understand that there are not too many books written on this subject, that really are worth while to buy; but, this follows into the category of "the crappy ones." I believe, that to write in a way that everyone understand, one has to understand that not everyone is born knowing everything, and if one writes a book is to provide with accurate information, at least. This is one of the worst, if not the worst, book I have ever had.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At half the price, this book is a rip off. This book will not take you from novice to pro. It will only take you from being $40.00 richer to $40.00 poorer. Reading this book was very much like seeing one side of a casual conversation between two people with slightly different levels of familiarity with Ubuntu. If you're looking for detail, depth and substance, keep looking. You wont find any of that in this book.
