Slacker Admins book list


So after seeing the LQ Slackware Suggestions thread, i decided to take a peek at the books it referenced to grab and there wasn't that many. I know online documentation is free and a good way to go, but myself i like to have a book in front of my sometimes. So i decided to search around on what the majority thought were good books on helping them out or what i've seen and thought would A. be a good book, or B. i've read the online doc and want the book. I also included a few books that are learner books, to help people like me, that will probably just give you a basic understanding what what it is how to do some stuff but to better understand it in a whole. I would love to update it with some more books that pertain to the subject or and suggestions on what i should change (like if you have one of the books and hate it).
Here is the list

Eh i figure someone already printed it out, why waste more paper. ESP. since they do a better job of printing it out than i could. Also the other thing i looked at when adding the books to the list was making sure the used books were a way better price and for the most part, most are.

Any other thoughts?

Here is the list
Slacker Admins books
Hi,

Glad the list helped!

There are a lot of reasons to have the dead trees on your desk for reference. One, the support of the author and of course the immediate access to the information. I limited the number to a few that were available as e-print online for 'FREE' therefore everyone has access.

I am still working on the 'Slackware LQ Suggestions!' lists of links. I'll look into adding more online reference books. There are quite a few that are not listed in the books section. Look at the 'RUTE', 'Slackware Essentials' and 'Slackware Basics' to name a few. These are available online and as dead tree desk reference($).

I really don't like to recommend something without reading the material myself. That way I know the contents worth or validity. It does take a while to read all the material. I do rely on others for reference but I still try to preview their referenced material.

I totally agree with you. Only 2 or 3 of the books that i have on the list are ones that i've only had a chance to skim through. So just to note again, if anyone has any of these books and didn't think it was up to par and/or have a better suggestion for another book please let me know.
