Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had purchased an Xserve to do audio and video file sharing across our network. I found that most other books (Mac OSX server Essentials and Essential Mac OSX Server Administration) tended to be parroting the help menu in the Xserve and really didn't advance my understanding. But with the Little Black Book I had the server up and sharing files the day the book arrived. This book has everything most people need to know without being unnecessarily complex. Many of the other books constantly referred to the terminal to do functions that are easier to do in the GUI. Unix isn't that incredibly difficult but if I don't have to go there, all the better. If you want to get an Xserver up and going fast, BUY THIS BOOK!

This book is a great general introduction to the ins and outs of OSX server. It covers every aspect of OSX server that an admin would need to know and is lovingly sprinkled with real life examples for when the stuff hits the proverbial fan.

It's concise, no nonsense and a great tool to have in my arsenal.

I love the books in the Little Black Book series. The text is tight. The material is always relevant. And the examples are good. And this book falls right in line with that. The only place where the book goes wrong is that it's screenshot heavy, which is unusual. That being said, a good resource for Mac OS X users. Definitely worth a look.

Format: Paperback
After spending numerous amounts of cash on study materials. I have never found such a purchase like this one. (I had even returned other titles worth much more $$ back to the bookstore.) This "Little Black Book" is a very essential toolkit with in-dept and real-world events with explanations for every situation that any Tiger Server admin may encounter while troubleshooting in the field. If you are looking for a compact, lightweight reference guide that can be thrown into any carry bag look no further.

Format: Paperback
'Mac Tiger Server: Little Black Book' by Charles Edge is a nice text that will assist all Mac Tiger users in better understanding and using this piece of hardware and software. There are a lot of screenshots but that's never a bad thing in this reviewers opinion, as the more easily I can see how things are laid out, the better!! If I want lines and lines of black text on white paper I will get the Wall Street Journal, if I want a book that I can use and learn from, this is a great one to have on your desk!!

**** RECOMMENDED
