1.0 out of 5 stars It was very hard for a beginer to understand. June 16 1999
By A Customer
I read it for a Unix class in college and I thought not only was the book not put in a format that beginers would not be easily able to grasp, but there were alot of mistakes and editing errors. Some of the examples were wrong (for the ones that had examples)and some of the numbered lists were put in the wrong order. Also it jumps around alot. I think they could have put it together better. Such as the vi editor and the file management. Why not put the chapters that pertain to vi together and the same for file management. There was a small paragraph on file management at the end of a command chapter.

5.0 out of 5 stars great student book for beginner Sept. 23 2002
Yes it has some typos, but get real, some of these reviews are ridiculous.
This is a great Book to learn UNIX, even the best I'd say.
It really starts from scratch and even gets into some Shell programming and scripts. I was impressed with the content, and being a Programmer analyst I will say it is an excellent book for those people starting out. I also like the Oreilly UNIX in a nutshell for a good reference.
IF those Unix "gurus" complaining could just shed some light on what is the best book then??? typical

1.0 out of 5 stars UNIX Unbounded: A Beginning Approach March 11 2000
Frustrating and exhausting reading. If you want to decipher the author's poor English, inconsistencies, incomplete examples and incorrect examples, then have at it. Seems like an attempted translation into English. Totally worthless for technical training. Author's good intention to provide tutorial sessions failed miserably with typos and syntax errors. If your professor is using this so-called textbook: Buy Another Unix Textbook. You'll be better off. Waste of my time and $.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Typos Aug. 26 2000
Overall a good introduction to the Unix Operating System, but the typographical errors are unforgiveable. The command line orientation of Unix is cumbersome enough without mistyped examples. Potentially frustrating for first time users, this book is in dire need of revision.
