Despite the fact that the author recommends you have experience with Linux, anyone with any computer knowledge whatsoever should be able to take off with this book like lightning. As a networking student in my junior year, I had absolutely no experience with Linux until this semester (coincidentally taking place at the same time as I am writing this.) This book has opened my eyes to an operating system I had no idea could be so simple. For years, I had fear of the unknown. Now, as I read this book and all it has to offer, I'm jumping in and exploring Linux to the fullest. Thank you, for an amazing read!
I bought it for my course at college and it is very helpful. The reading is quiet easy to comphrehend.
Excellent step-by-step book on learning linux
Nice book, even though it's a used one.
