LXer: Book Review: The Debian System, Concepts and Techniques by Martin Krafft

Published at LXer:

Here, to kick off our new Groklaw feature of book reviews, is Carla Schroder's review of "The Debian System, Concepts and Techniques," by Martin Krafft. No Starch published it (you can buy it as a book or as a PDF from them), and of course Amazon has it, and the author's page provides a link to a list of places around the world where the book is available.

This is the definitive Debian manual, and I wish it had been written years ago. Mr. Krafft's affection and enthusiasm for Debian is apparent, and makes this book a pleasurable read.
This is the only Linux book (probably the only COMPUTER book) that I have read cover to cover. I've considered writing a review for LQ, but there are plenty of reviews on the net already, and I couldn't be any more enthusiastic than everyone else who's gotten there ahead of me.

Only comment I'll make is, "Don't read it if you're not a Debian user; unless you're ready to change your primary distro anyway."
