Pretty much just a paraphrasing of the man pages, no arcane knowledge or dark secrets, just useful information. This book is thinner than some childrens books.Published 17 months ago by Joel C Kirchartz
Lacks good and complex examples and workflow explanation. Besides that Kindle version is badly formatted. Reading man page would be as effective.Published 18 months ago by Andrey Vasilenkov
