"UNIX administration isn't that difficult after you have gained
a few years of real experience. However, both new and old
administrators alike face an uphill battle when learning new
systems and being required to solve new problems. In order to help
administrators in this struggle, a solid set of documentation is
required. This gives administrators the weapon they need to tackle
their problems with confidence everyday."
"O'Reilly has created such a set of documentation with their
well-known System Administration series. Naturally, the series
needed a solid foundation on which all other books would be built.
This allowed the authors of the series to make assumptions about a
reader's competency so that they could get to the matter at hand
without being required to cover well-traveled ground."
"Despite its age, the book is still both an excellent primer
for first time UNIX administrators, as well as veterans that feel
they need to brush up on their skills. A must buy for any UNIX
administrator, regardless of whether it will be used as an
introduction to administration or as a reference manual."
