I wish I would of had a book like this 12 years ago when I was first learning Linux. Now that I am teaching it my students are going to have a much easier time grasping the foundations of Linix admin with the help of this book. I especially like the consise nature of each chapter. Relaying the information that is essential to the begginner without overwhelming them with details.
