Pros: detailed and clear

This is the perfect book for someone who's installed Linux once or twice, knows his /bin from his /sbin, no longer panics when faced with the commandline, and is hungry to learn more.
Without wasting time holding hands, Roderick W. Smith explains the core concepts behind getting the most out of a Linux system, and describes the tools and commands needed to do so.

If you've dabbled with Tux here and there and want to get serious, this is the book for you.
