[A review of the THIRD EDITION 2005.] In the last 10 years, it appears that the shell wars in unix and linux have settled down. With bash being the clear favourite. So if you are going to invest your time learning any shell, perhaps you should go with bash and maybe use this book as a helper. It shows that script writing in bash is pretty simple. If you already know another shell, like csh or Korn, then the ideas carry over and so too would most of the syntax. Along the way, the book teaches you more about your operating system. Especially for managing processes/jobs. My background is as a programmer, so I've never been big on shells and their scripting. But others like you may hark from a sysadmin role and prefer shell activity.
