I love this book. Contains the information I need most. The book is just the right size to carry around. My favorite topic is filesystems... This book shows you the commands to format, mount, backup. It also discusses: Software Raid, LVM, loop mounting... etc. It does a good job and covers nearly everything in a concise, no nonsense, manner. It's the perfect Linux handbook. I use Debian and find it suitable. If you use Red Hat, most will apply, except for the package management section, etc.

I have both editions of this reference book. I liked the first edition very much and bought the second edition as well to be sure I had not missed any corrections or additions. While I have not compared the two editions to see what changed, I am, nevertheless, glad I added the second to my collection.

This is not a work to be read from front to back as a novel, it makes a great random-browse book as well as a problem solving book when confronted with a specific need for information on the Ubuntu OS or related matters. So many works seem to be a mixture of fluff and hype, it is a real pleasure to sit down with a book that is quietly competent.

This is a great question-answering reference and useful source not only for "How-to", but also "What options do I have", and it does its job with clarity and clear explanations where such are appropriate.

I had some question when I ordered the second edition as to whether I would be wasting my money, already having the first edition on hand. Now, I am glad I did, indeed, buy the second edition ... it is a worthwhile addition to my reference library.

I am a "happy camper" !
