This review is from: Ubuntu Unleashed 2014 Edition: Covering 13.10 and 14.04 (9th Edition) (Paperback)
I think this is a good summary of the more important things about Ubuntu. It doesn't go into the depth I wished for. for instance, the Unity GUI is so weird for the standard Windows user (talking about Windows up to version 7 here) that more material on this would be necessary. Unity is the first thing you see about Ubuntu Linux and it is hard to master so I think there should be more material on this.
Other things are touched but then not handled in depth quoting that it would be too much material to cover in the book. I think the book should leave out some of the more obscure aspects and rather focus on a more in depth approach of the more important things.
Still it is a good overview for a total newcommer like myself.
