Reviews of Linux Pocket Guide by Daniel: Essential Commands
Great introduction to Linux. As the title indicates this is not a comprehensive guide to Linux, but touches the basics of the operating system, including navigating the file system, manipulating files, connecting to other nodes, writing bash scripts. Despite the fact I have been using Linux/Unix systems for ±3 years I found some nifty tips about programs I use on a daily basis. I can recommend it to anyone who recently started working with Linux/Unix. (by Bart Schuijt, goodreads.com)
