    You will not be a Solaris 8 Master after reading this Book!

    The title of this book is a misnomer.You will learn how to work with Solaris 8 but NOT master it. I bought the book because it was inexpensive and I hoped it would be a good reference. To date, it has not helped me solve and manage any system administration issue. Unless you are new to both Unix and Solaris, save your money.
