"Professional Linux Deployment is one of the only books of its kind I'm aware of. As one would assume, the text assembles information on the many aspects of Linux installation, configuration, and use related to deployment in a business-class networked environment. As such, it is a text about Linux application in a specific context text rather than simply a text about a given Linux service or program."

"At over 600 pages, this is the weightiest Apache book I've seen to date, and Professional Apache carries that weight well. This is the book that many would-be Linux Web administrators have been waiting for. Generally, when writing a review, one seeks to uncover the strengths and the weaknesses of a text and to discuss the situations in which a text will be helpful."

"Beginning Linux Programming is a giant book, at nearly 1,000 pages, and seems to have a fairly ambitious goal: to give the programmer a reasonable introduction to the tools and environments associated with programming in Linux using one of several languages and toolkits, including the shell, Tcl/Tk, perl, C, Gtk. Contexts include applications, device drivers, and Web programming, among others."
