"The UNIX CD Bookshelf, packaged by O'Reilly & Associates, Inc., marks the third installment in an emerging series by my favorite publisher. The CD-ROM contains a complete copy of UNIX in a Nutshell: System V Edition; UNIX Power Tools, 2nd Edition; Learning the vi Editor, 5th Edition; Learning the UNIX Operating System, 4th Edition; sed and awk, 2nd Edition; and Learning the Korn Shell. These electronic files are laid out in HTML format on the CD-ROM, making them easy to read, navigate, share across local area networks and travel. O'Reilly has also included all the software from UNIX Power Tools, i.e., many useful utilities, shell scripts and software."

"... the true power of The Bookshelf is unleashed with the included search facility, which makes every book searchable, allowing users to quickly mine information..."

"The included Java-powered search engine requires installation of the Java run-time environment (JRE), which is conveniently located on the CD."

"The UNIX CD Bookshelf is a must for any UNIX beginner who hasn't been previously exposed to the usefulness of these wonderful books."
