This book is a reference and not a how to. I feel it is an excellent attempt to form a concise reference for almost all of the commands found in a common linux distribution. I would recommend this book for for everyone running linux (or UNIX), but it is not much help for those in need of answers to setup or configuration information (MHO). Instead, this book is written for those who already have a running system and need a memory jog on a particular command or option.

This book is designed for those with little experience using Linux. About half the book is a command reference guide covering most (if not all) commands you can type via terminal.Also includes chapter for package management, Bash, editors (vim, vi, emacs), subversion and virtualization. However no reference is made to Gnome, KDE or similars. If you know nothing about Linux, better start with "Running Linux". If you want a more advanced book then "Linux Cookbook", "Linux Networking Cookbook" and "Linux System Administration" are for you.
