What Readers Are Saying About The Linux Command Line!
"I have been using Linux for a little over a year. Read as much as I could including Rute, and many others. I have learned more in the first 93 pages of your book than any others!!!!"
"What a great help your book has been for me! I was looking for a book like yours, but I never was able to find one that really walks the reader through the Linux command line in a general sort of way. Do you know of any others? If I recall, there are a lot of books dedicated to shell scripting, but none that are geared to regular command-line use."
"Fantastic book!! I have recently switched from the legacy OS to Linux and I have been trying to find a distro that mimics this legacy OS in fear of using the terminal. I ran across this book and opened the terminal for the first time. This book teaches you everything you need to know about the shell and does it with ease. It starts by giving you a solid foundation and builds from there. Its simplicity and informative structure is ideal for all new beginners switching to Linux. I am now always on the terminal even for the simplest things. Not only does this build love, but I also get to practice my shell scripting. Great book!!"
"I've been enjoying reading the book and have learned a lot from every chapter. Your writing is very clear, and I've enjoyed following along with your examples. I've skimmed a couple of Linux books before, but never had enough time to really get into them. From those experiences however, I think your book is much clearer and approachable for beginners."
"WOW! What a great book. It will clearly provide a stepping stone for many people who want to wean themselves off of their GUI habit, or perhaps just "Make the difficult possible."
"I think one of the greatest assets of the book that most others about Linux don't have is the conversational tone. I feel like in almost every chapter, there are parts where you lead the reader to ask questions of the material that aren't necessarily covered."
