Excellent Introduction

This is an excellent introduction to Linux. It's brief enough to be listen in an afternoon and yet has enough detail to actually get a newbie using the command line to manage files, edit text, inspect and stop processes.

Well written and full of information

As a Infrastructure engineer who spends more time in Windows than Linux, this book was fantastic. Nothing else comes as close to clearly explaining the internal mechanics of the Linux operating system. I'd suggest that this is an essential listen for anyone new in the field of Linux server systems looking for a deep dive.

Exactly what it says on the tin

Exactly what it says on the tin. This book will get you from zero to comfortable in no time and remove the delusion that Linux is something hard; it will demystify a lot of common pitfalls that people new to the operating system will fall into that tends to put them off. It can go as deep or as light on each subject and the author warns you of this ahead of time.

Good book

I really liked this book and it was a great listen , not too long, not too short, it was the perfect amount. Coming from a programming background and already knowing a bit of linux, I found the chapters to be quite informative and well presented, and will take you anywhere from 15 to 35 minutes approx, many here have said that the book will not teach hacking, and that's half true, it will teach you all the basics of linux and some bash and python scripting, and in my opinion that's enough,

An excellent book to take your Linux knowledge

I have been waiting for the release of the second edition of this book for a while and I was not disappointed. This book gives a real insight into the inner workings of Linux. It is not a beginners book and I would recommend listening If you have mastered the Linux basics this book will take you to the next level.

Good information,

I bought this book because I had no prior experience with Linux because of how big and tiring listening the entire chapters I just skip to certain pages that is crucial for me setting up a basic server. If you're interested in IT infrastructure, getting way around with Linux filesystem, using Linux for daily work maybe personal or office use, and getting into cloud services this book will teach you the fundamentals about Linux.

A good book for beginners. If someone does not understand LINUX at all and does not know what it is, then in this book he will find useful information for himself that you need to know.

Recommend

Linux is a totally new thing for me. I read this type of book for the very first time. So far I understood it is a computer program for creating modular web application. If you are interested to work with it, this book is an option for you. Very detailed discussion is given in this book. You can try it.
