I was actually trying to use this book as a text for teaching a Linux Admin class. My two biggest complaints are 1) much if not most server admin is done using a GUI. Apparently, Mr. Petersen is unaware that servers are typically running without GUIs. And 2) is the order of the topics in the early chapters. On the plus side, the text that does apply is well written, and I much prefer this book over Ubuntu's "Official Server Book." However, I cannot recommend this book if you are actually doing Ubuntu Server administration at the command line. It is missing some key admin areas, like TCP/IP, and you will be largely disappointed in this book for the above reasons. A much better choice is Wale Soyinka's "Linux Administration: A Beginner's Guide."
