This book is a very quick read - much of it will be reiteration if you've already read tarsnap's webpage and help/manpages. However, as he does with many other topics, Michael W. Lucas has brought a realm of "real" to tarsnap. His examples of realistic-use and sarcastic-humour will earn a nod of "I've been there too" approval. If you're looking for a simple, secure way to backup Linux/BSD/Unixy machines - consider tarsnap and this book.
While using the book to set up and start using Tarsnap, I only had to look at the manpage once and that was because I misread an instruction in the book. “Tarsnap Mastery” explains everything clearly and in detail.
