"Whilst there does seem to be a trend amongst many publishers to deliver ever more comprehensive titles, cramming details of almost every command-line switch and GUI option across a huge range of tools and packages, O'Reilly can always be relied upon to publish works that deal concisely with one aspecty of GNU/Linux or excel in offering a psecific functionality. Linux Pocket Guide is exemplary in this respect, cleverly avoiding the unnecessary bloat associated with titles that share the same subject matter - Fedora Linux. Indeed, this highly portable volume manages to kill two birds with one stone, funcitoning both as handy quick reference and an essential introduction to basic everyday tooks and commands. And though Fedora specifics such as desktop and package managerment are covered in some detail, nearly all of the material here could well be applied to almost any distro." Martin Howse, Linux User and Developer, Issue 40 "Can't memorise man pages? This is for you." Linux Format, Oct (top stuff award)

Reference-style detail is given to the most valuable commands you will come across. Also has tricks and tips for user and administrator tools.
As a former engineering educator, I can recommend this book as a supplemental textbook for a systems administration course. For the price, the students will thank you too.
- provide a very good explanation on the basic Linux concepts;
- provide a very good summary of all the basic linux commands. The list of commands is very complete.
- it is good reference book to have on your desk, if you work on Software development on Linux OS or if you just want to learn Linux.
