The book is written in an easy and smooth way, giving the reader the choice to start anywhere he prefer, since the book has various sections that can be studied in any order (if you have at keast the basics of unix or linux, otherwise is better to start from the beginning); and i never found a book like this; where i can find the answers in one place, instead of getting 4 different books plus google :)
ultra suggested, in particular for who has courses in unix and shell scripting at the college like me
Some positives about the text are as follows
1, every concept and programming construct is followed by an example
2, the sample data file (to try the different programming techniques against) are repeated multiple times. This saves time and effort and avoids the hassle of flipping back and forth in the book
3, the material has been covered in just the right depth & breadth
The plan going forward is to use "Unix by example" as the stepping stone to advanced awk, sed, and Korn shell programming texts.
The second phase of the plan is to buy, read, and try every example from Quigley's Perl text before investing in Oreily's counterpart text.
All in all, a great introduction to the Unix power tools
I admit, I only really use about 1/2 of the book for BASH, SED, and AWK but still, I can not recommend it enough.
