Taken from the book :
In the Guide, you'll learn how to: Copy, move, and delete files and directories. Create, delete, and manage users. Create, delete, and manage groups. Use virtual terminals. Use the bash shell. Safely use the root account with su and sudo. Change permissions and ownership of files and directories. Create and edit text files from the command line, without using a graphical editor. Diagnose network connectivity problems. And many other topics.
I gave this book 5 stars because it covered exactly what it stated, and was a steal for the price.
That said, I'm giving it two stars because of the spelling and grammatical errors. Some of the errors could easily have been found and corrected by a simple MS Word spell check. Many others could have been discovered by a handful of beta readers. It's unfortunate, because I would have given it four stars otherwise. The information is there, it just needs to be cleaned up.
The author also included an excerpt from his fantasy novel at the end (and hints to it periodically throughout the book). I'm not opposed to authors trying to promote themselves and get their other works out there, but any medium you use to promote your work should be free of typos themselves.
All in all, though, this book is just what I needed to begin to learn the Linux command line, and recommend it to anyone seeking same,
This one focuses on using command-line commands instead of the GUI interface. Translation: The focus is on typing coded commands into a line on your desktop instead of clicking on a little icon do to the same thing. This works for some folks and not for others. I prefer the icons, BUT . . . there are times when it is to your distinct advantage to know how the command-line function works, so even if you're not that interested now, it's a good one to skim through so you'll know where to look when you need the info!
Highly recommended. So is Ubuntu! If you're a newbie, stick with it. Read this book and the others like it. It's worth your while!
