There are some books out there that say that they are for beginners but leave out critical information. This one starts out with basic info that every user/admin should know and tells a little bit more with info where to find some more info. This book will also prepare you for taking the first test for Linux+ certification. It is worth the money to have as a reference and companion to Linux in a Nutshell.
