Not worth the money!

This book doesn't even mention Timeshift which Linux Mint calls star of the show and its use is critical to updating from 18.3 to 19. I checked the SurfingTurtlePress website which appears in the process of being updated, doesn't even mention version 19 of the book or provide any addendum to the book with respect to critical ommissions such as this. As far as I can determine, this version of the book is just a minor update to version 18 and not worth the price of admission. It may even be grounds for return. Another person mentions that Timeshift is mentioned (p. 108-111) and I did verify that but it is in the wrong place as it is a "first step" before you can even upgrade, and Timeshift is not referenced in the Index. I still consider this book a revision/update to the 18 version and does not add to the conversation, especially with its $42 price tag. I own the previous versions of the book (17 and 18) as well as several other books from Surfing Turtle Press. Incidentally, 18 was 590 pages in length while this version "19" is only 553 pages so what got taken out!
Great Resource for the Linux Mint Distro!! 👍🐧
October 8, 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Linux Mint was the Distro I chose in switching from Windows 10 and this book was my choice to begin the process of learning about life in the Linux universe. I found it organized, well written and informative. I'm using it to develop a fair to middling working knowledge of the operating system and applications that come with the OS. The transition has gone well and I'm not regretting the decision to escape the Redmond juggernaut. I've also been bitten by the whole open source thing and am planning to try some other Linux distros just for fun.
