2.0 out of 5 stars Mint, or Clover?, February 3, 2014
This review is from: Linux Mint System AdministratorA¢a‚¬a„¢s Beginners Guide (Paperback)
Am I the first to notice an author has written a book about Mint but put a picture of Clover on the cover instead of Mint? In fact, it's obviously not the common white clover, very likely some type of Oxalis or Sorrel "clover lookalike". I use Mint Linux as my main desktop, but what confidence can I have in a book where the author didn't even do the basic research of looking up what a Mint leaf actually looks like?

lol nice point, rarely however to tech geeks have too much understanding of plants. Knowing the type i would say the dude wrote the book put all the info together outsourced the cover work to a buddy or a publisher, they showed it to him and he apathetically agreed.

The pictures used by the publisher Packt do not necessarily relate to the book's content. In fact, you can send in pictures for Packt to use on future books.
