Newbie Linux Book offer in LQ newsletter, is it just for working people?
The exact title of the book I don't know but it's the only one shown at the first few paragraphs of the LQ newsletter; think it's from "".

It insist in making me fill out some NON-APPLICABLE info before letting me d/l it. I don't find a different method of applying for the book anywhere.

Is it legal to receive that book from a member from this forum through/via, say, google docs, skydrive, dropbox etc.?

Thanks for any relevant replies!

I looked around the website and can't find any licensing information. Not saying it's not there, but, if it is, it's well hidden.

I can, however, recommend a couple of good sites as alternatives; there are many other excellent linux reference sites on the net. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info. Machtelt Garrels's Intro to Linux. There is lots of additional excellent reference material at that location also.

Feel free to put NON-APPLICABLE or N/A in any field that doesn't apply to you. You'll still be able to download the ebook at the end of the process.

Thanks to both of you, frankbell & jeremy, for your replies!

This site is a little demanding on the information side but, at the end, it worked! I already browsed the book; now, what's left is to find a way to put it somewhere I can bring with me to read it while I'm waiting somewhere for a service (bank, government agency, doctor' office, etc.).
