Great read and reference!,
This review is from: Ubuntu Kung Fu: Tips, Tricks, Hints, and Hacks (Paperback)
Let me first level-set on my Linux experience and skills..... I am a relative beginner to Ubuntu. I've been using it for about 18 months and I'm on the third version since I started. I am a Windows Sys Admin by profession, but Ubuntu is what I use at home and outside of work.
The first thing I should say about "Ubuntu Kung Fu", is that it really was a pleasant surprise. This book is loaded with tips, tricks and hacks. While I read it cover to cover, you don't have to - it is an excellent collection of practical tips and is going on my desk for future reference. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced Ubuntu user, there are 315 very useful, well detailed shortcuts, hacks and little-known facts presented for easy reading.
I dog-eared many pages and have already implemented a few, and they worked just as described! Many have been marked for use on my next Ubuntu install. I definitely recommend this book - there is value for users at all levels. The author's style is light, thoughtful and well researched. I highly recommend "Ubuntu Kung Fu" for anyone interested in wanting to get more out of Ubuntu and their computer.
