Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I've read many books about Linux, and most of them left me a bit foggier than when I started. The Linux Phrasebook feels more like hands-on help -- an engaging read in bite-sized bits that come in handy on a daily basis."--Tina Gasperson, Editor, NewsForge.com

    Best Book Ever...Great!!

    This is a surperb book. I full expect to see it on the NY Times best seller list. It will most probably knock Rich Dad out of the coveted #1 spot. Every person should have at least three copies of this book. Beat your feet down to the store and grab four copies today. Makes a great gift also.
