"The author, Bob Rankin, delivers an easily readable book with not a lot of garbage. In fact he keeps the prerequisite history and advocacy sections to a few pages. This is an aptly named book. All of the chapters are straight to the point and expect the reader to have basic computer knowledge."
"Keeping the book to what's available on the CD, the author gives a good overview of a number of Linux commands. He continues with quick overviews of many applications, both command line and GUI."
"Another nifty thing in the book is an appendix with a short explanation of every application on the provided CD. He also has another appendix with DOS to Unix equivalencies."
"... for a beginner this is a great start."
