"Exceptionally well presented, but the reader needs to be motivated to learn shell programming. That is not to say the book is complex and requires some particular background knowledge; shell programming--whether bash or any other of the Unix/Linux shells--is a powerful tool that requires focus. The effort is well worth while, and this is the best from which to start."
-- Major Keary, Book News

"This third edition serves as the most valuable guide yet to the bash shell."
-- Sridhar Sriramoju, http://sridharscribe.blogspot.com/

"After you read and understand this book, you'll be well on your way to becoming a competent bash shell programmer."
--Ed Schaefer, Unix Review, June 2005
