It's easy to read, well formatted and very informative.
R. Blizzard
This is a perfect book for someone looking to become a Fedora Administrator, or for someone looking to gain merely a working knowledge of this operating system.
Robert W. Jaster
I hope the author is able to continue to revise the book as new Fedora releases are produced.

Format: Paperback
Chris' writing style is easy to read and flows as smoothly and conversationally as chatting with your best friend. The book is not an "overview," as it does drill down into many of the most difficult issues surrounding using and administering a Fedora-based Linux system.

I've been a Linux user since 1992 and I learned a LOT from reading this book. There are literally 100s of nifty tidbits of useful information packed away inside these pages. I don't know if I can give 5 stars to a "secular" Linux book, but it probably deserves them!

In the usual O'Reilly tradition, the book is exceptionally well-edited and the content practically overflows the pages.

There is an interesting presentation "feature" to the book that constantly poses questions and provides the answers to them that is compelling, unique and very practical. While not every question is one that I've asked myself, each answer is useful information to which I often didn't know the exact answer.

I highly commend Chris' work. If you are using or plan to use a Fedora-based Linux system, this is a "must have" book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Despite having used linux for many years, and fedora since its release, I found lots of very specific how-to information in this book that would take a long time to find in other documentation. The term "lab-based approach" in the book's description basically translates into the book having very detailed and accurate step-by-step instructions for performing common (and some not-so-common) Fedora tasks. Although the book is focused on Fedora system administration tasks, there is also lots of material that any Fedora desktop or laptop user would want/need to know.

I hope the author is able to continue to revise the book as new Fedora releases are produced. The book is very current as of Core 5/6 but Linux changes so fast that any book has to be revised frequently to keep up.

One thing I especially like about this book is that there isn't the "padding" so common in Linux books. This book includes helpful URL references, but doesn't pad its page count with their contents. All the original content in this book makes it an extremely good value and I strongly recommend it to anyone working with a relevant Fedora release.

Format: Paperback
Just to add what the others have said -- this book is very, very well written. I've read (or tried to read) several Linux "get up to speed" books on specific distributions and have found that most either insult your intelligence with detailed steps describing very simple procedures -- or they completely gloss over difficult subjects. (Often they do both in the same chapter.) Chris Tyler seems to have found the perfect middle ground in "Fedora Linux." It's easy to read, well formatted and very informative. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn, or better use Fedora, CentOS, Red Hat or any of the Red Hat based distributions. Once the book has been read through, I think you'll find it to be an excellent reference as well. Great textbook, highly recommended.
