Pros: small size, convenience, and ease of use
Cons: lacks extensive information for each command

I like it because I can easily carry it around in my laptop bag because the book is so small. It has small print, and it is 172 pages. It is helpful to remind me of the different commands which I cannot always remember. However, If I need to find more in-depth information about a particular command, this book lacks it. I bought this book so that I could use commands that I didn't know existed, and if I need to find out more about a certain command, I can easily find that information on the internet. It is a convenient quick reference, much easier and faster than the internet for finding out basic things like what certain arguments do on a command, and more portable than the more extensive Linux references.
