The first couple chapters are, what is linux, what are the different distro's and desktop environments. (GNOME/KDE/UNITY, etc)
All of these I already knew, but if you are new to Linux, they give you a good idea of how it is different. Then it goes into power user, bash scripting/terminal use, then systems network admin topics are covered. If you are 100% new to Linux than this book will be over your head past the second or third chapter. You will basic Shell scripting, editors such as Vi, setting up Red Hat/CentOS server's and securing them with SELinux. (Secure Linux) The Scripting, Secure Linux, and setup of servers on Red Hat directly link to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux certification exams. This is great, but should have been more clear on the name of the book. If you want a more general Linux book, look for Linux Fundamentals, I also have that and it not distro specific.

It's a good book over all, I have been using linux for 5 years now and mainly use Arch, so a majority of this book was irrelevant. However I gave it 4 stars because the things that I found useful where extremely useful. I know this book was wrote as a guide and it's not meant to be the man page for every command, but there where some flags she did not go over for a majority of the commands discussed that I felt where vital to every day use of linux, lspci -k , is a command i use almpst every time I am troubleshooting and it wasn't mentioned. Again I know it is not a man page for lspci but that flag -k is a life changer.

All and all, it is a good book and for $30 you cant beat it.

Shipping/Packaging: purchased book new and received a dog eared copy with a creased cover. It was packaged in an ill fitting box with too little filler so it bounced around during shipping. Cover is scratched as well. I know I’m being nit-picky, but I expected more from amazon for a $30+ book.

Browsing through the content, it seems fairly comprehensive. I don’t have much to add beyond that yet.

I haven't finished the book, but so far I really appreciate the book. The author gives explains methods/concepts, gives step by step insturctions and then explains a little more. This is exactly the book i was looking for. I'm completely new to LInux and pretty new to non-windows use of a computer. I've been trying to learn Linux but most books and tutorials do not get down to the basic level. The author explains the basic design of the Linux os, and gives good examples/explanations. The book doesn't seem too technical or boring, like a glossary. For me, this is exactly what I needed.

I am using this book as a supplement to another book that I am using to study for the RHCSA/RHCE. I'm only 130+ pages into this & I'm glad I purchased it. This book takes you from scratch, assuming you know nothing about Linux, and takes you all the way through RHCE knowledge. The author is RHCE certified & used to administer RHCE exams; he also teaches RHCE courses.

The book contains clearly written examples & explanations. The sequence of material is very well chosen & you get an intuitive understanding of Linux. (I have skimmed ahead.) The biggest advantage to this book over other Linux books is that the Chris Negus has a teaching background & so his explanations & overall presentation feels more flowing & intuitive than what you'll see in other books. I chose this book over another Linux book for that reason.

This really is a great resource and my "go-to" book for Linux. I just purchased the Kindle edition and I was upset to discover the table of contents only lists out the parts of the book - no chapters or sections. I can still use the search feature, but it makes learning about a topic frustrating to find.

My interest and selection of this book is because I am taking a course on UNIX/LINUX in college. I wanted a good overview of what was available, and the opportunity to play with different versions before I selected one for my class use. I have been wanting to break free of the Microsoft system and monopoly on the operating system within the United States, and explore other options for years. Unfortunately, until the last decade, that has been difficult at best. Now, however, with the Open Source Projects, and GNU Licensing programs, and, most importantly, the porting and developing of comparable software to the LINUX OS, it is now possible to see what is outside in the real world.

LINUX is available for both the Intel x86 and AMD CPU chipsets. I have tested installations on both CPU's now. Almost all major software publishers now publish for LINUX. This includes Adobe (Acrobat and Reader, and plugins, Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird, OpenOffice, Corel Wordperfect Suite, and more).

So, IF you have an interest or just have a curiousity in alternative operating systems to Microsoft Windows, the Bible series for LINUX is a good introduction. The text includes a DVD and a CD that have 'LIVE' bootable distributions or versions of 18 different flavors of LINUX. Besides giving you a general overview of LINUX features, you, also, get a general overview of the more popular flavors of LINUX. The real grabber for this book, IMHO, is that you can try different distributions without installing onto the harddrive. You will find some versions to be easy to work with and are graphical user interface (GUI) based like MS Windows, and others are more complicated using a Command-Line-Interface much like the old DOS before Windows.

Should you decide you want to install, you have several options:
1) Replace your existing operating system
2) Use a multi-boot system
3) Install as a Virtual Machine
4) Install to an external drive (My personal choice for testing and playing.)

I feel quite comfortable recommending this book and the Bible series in general for computer information. I hope this helps you to decide which book to purchase for your personal interest.
