"I can't think of a better single source for the practical knowledge you need. You'll gain an understanding of what's going on under the hood, how to diagnose problems you encounter, and how to talk to either system or network administrators about fixing those problems." -Slashdot, 13 April 2015

Reading Lucas is akin to a correspondence course on System Administration. Often building from BSD environments, his well-written instructions highlight a toolset of useful-things to the reader. Thoughtful footnotes deliver license-unencumbered, professional help to those in need--for we who play with these machines need help indeed.
After reading my initial copy of this book I told everybody on all the server teams at work to get and read copies of it.
As a network engineer this book has all the information about networks I wish every server person had laid out in a clear, easy to understand, sensible, and amusing format. If you read, understand, and follow this book you will improve your troubleshooting, make your network person love you, and decrease problems with your servers dramatically.
From now on I'll recommend every single systems person I work with read this book. You should get a copy. Today.
