"This book is another book in the Black Book series from Coriolis and it is not bad although it has a few problems. I take issue with any book that claims to be a 'Linux' book and then goes about showing you distribution specific ways of doing things. If you are going to be distribution specific then just say so, call the book "Red Hat Linux Whatever....". That is my biggest issue with the book, it is fairly (but not always) Red Hat and Caldera specific...."

"The book is technically acurate and the information is very good. I highly recomend the book to those who are new to Linux and are running Red Hat or Caldera Linux. The book would make an excellent reference manual to keep near the desk and refer to when you need to know how to do perform a certain task. If you are an experienced Linux user the book may still hold good information for you. However, if you do not run Red Hat or Caldera then give the book a miss."
