    Exceptionally good tech book

    This book is truly a gem! While it may not have the latest info on specific flavors of Unix, it's an exceptionally clear introduction to general Unix concepts and commands that will be applicable whether you find yourself using Solaris, Linux, BSD, HP-UX, AIX, Irix or ... It's not a guide to all the commands, in the way the O'Reilly's excellent Nutshell books are, but with this as your intro and O'Reilly as your reference you can be a wizard quickly.

    Nice One !!!

    This is a good book. This book covers both Bourne shell and Korn shell scripting. Authors have managed to cover almost everything required for Shell-scripting but missed out few important commands like head,tail,find,du,df etc. Otherwise this is a great book. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn Bourne/korn Shell scripting.
