Very good book and easy to read, everything you wanted to know about Linux (and more), a very good reference volume, and a very good buy in my estimation.

This book was just OK. Even if you are a noob with linux, this book can't be very helpful. It does go in to detail about distros and some basic commands but overall I found the layout to be confusing and spotty. I'd suggest googling out the distro you want to use and then get a book tailored to that flavor of linux.
I got this on kindle and a day later put in for a refund. Got the full refund! :) Gotta Love Amazon
