Product Description

From the Back Cover

If you've mastered the flavors, commands, and technical jargon surrounding Unix, are comfortable working from within the command line, and are now
itching to take your Unix skills to the next level, this is the place to start! Using a task-based teaching style and easy visual approach, author Chris Herborth does more than just enumerate commands here. In these pages, he shows you how to combine and synthesize those commands to take full advantage of all of Unix's functionality. The focus here is on Unix security, networking, and system administration. By the time you reach the end of this volume, you'll be solving problems and administering systems
competently--in short, tapping all of Unix's power.

"Back Cover Text" here is wrong Jan. 22 2006
By Chris - Published on
Format: Paperback
The "Back Cover Text" for this book is the description pasted from the UNIX Visual QuickStart book. The back of the book actually just includes some points about why the Visual QuickPro series is helpful, and a short blurb about the author (me).

I'm giving the book a "4" because I wrote it (so you wouldn't believe a "5," and a "3" would suggest that it was terrible), and because I've used it as a reference myself a few times since it was published.
