Pros: Uses examples and touches on all currently used shells
Cons: Feels like it focus on Korn shell more then any other shell

I grabbed this as a better book to help me get BASH scripting, compared to the text book for the class.

It gives examples on how an operation should look (i.e. loops, if-then-else, menus, ect.). This works for someone like me that needs a visual add on something completely forein like programming.

One nice aspect is that you can learn how to use other shells. For example if your going to move or experiment with BSD knowing C shell would be usful.
