This review is from: A Practical Guide to Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (7th Edition) (Paperback)
Mark Sobell continues to make a dense subject enjoyable to digest. He covers a vast range of topics in great detail but organizes it all in a way that it can be used as quick reference just as easily as it can be consumed in context. Real-world examples and applications are referenced throughout the book making the the smallest commands "practical" and tangible in the greater scheme. The new chapter on virtual hosting is an extra boost to those working on cloud servers, but really much/most of the material elsewhere can easily translate to remote administration. The excises are fun, the tips are helpful, and the glossary is very useful.
Fedora and Red Hat are covered extensively, but much of the core concepts in this book apply to the Linux OS as a whole and would benefit all those working in the environment.
