Keogh and the Dummies guys did a fine job. I'm hesitant buying Dummies books because they are usually too basic. But I found this one an exception. It has the right technicial blend for those who are looking for a second book on Linux and for those who want practical Linux programming skills. I highly recommend this.
I¿m glad the Dummies folks finally came out with a Linux programming book. The book was well worth the wait. I recommend buying this book if you want to take control of Linux. This book is true to the Dummies style and walks you through the steps needed to creating your own Linux program. I found the part showing you how to write your own mass mailing program a fabulous insight. Place this one on your wish list.
IDG did it again. This time they cut through all the stuff you don't need. I found this to be the straightforward, easy approach to learn linux programming. If you're like me, you want to get up to speed fast - and you do by reading this book. This is my nomination for the top linux programming book.
