5.0 out of 5 stars Very handy reference book
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 August 2021
This book is very handy for reference. For context I am not a UNIX or Linux System Administrator, I am a Peer Mentor in the NHS with a Masters in Intellectual History. I am learning, and to have a nice clear, cogent, readable explanation of the various command line programs for managing servers has helped me enormously with my Raspberry Pi and VM projects. I have a particular interest in operating systems and the human node machine interface and this book is lovely. Also the art is very cool, and it is throughout the book!
