Question Audiobooks About Linux Administration


I have been tasked with becoming an A+ certified Linux Admin at my new job. (Yay! and yes, I AM thankful to have a job!)

I also have a hefty commute - one hour each way.

I would like to use that drive time to train for the Linux Admin tests.

Does anyone know of any audiobook recordings of such titles as Linux in a Nutshell or anything at all?

A search of Audible and eMusic audiobooks turns up, basically, zero audiobooks on this topic.

I could also use audiobooks on MySQL Administration . . .

Any thoughts, hints or ideas of where to find these?

Thanks in advance!

/David C.

With these types of technical topics, you will be looking at a lot of code, terminal output, text configuration files, etc. That stuff is pretty hard to grok on an audiobook. Probably explains why you haven't come across any audiobooks on these subjects. I know of none myself and can't imagine how they would be useful without being able to see and analyze the code.

Probably because a lot of computer stuff is never meant to be read aloud, and even impossible to pronounce!

If you have a laptop or netbook or smartphone or PDA, you may be better off looking for downloadable versions of the books and reading them that way - assuming that you aren't commuting by car, of course! If you are going by car you are likely to be out of luck
