    Good of its kind

    This book is well-organized and clear. It suffers from poor editing. For example, the 'directories' diagram on page 58 does not include the '/boot' directory mentioned on page 42, and on page 60 they talk about 'ls -l' when they really mean 'ls -i'. But I'm currently using it to study for my LPI exam, and so far I'm generally pleased. I've got a bunch of years of UNIX and Linux experience, though, so I can usually work around the errors. Most of what they say is correct and worthwhile. Check specifics against a working Linux system before believing them.
