"In any edition, this book has a permanent place on my shelf for reference...If you never use the command line in Linux, the book might not interest you. Otherwise, I can’t imagine using Linux without having a copy nearby."
-- Matthew Helmke, MatthewHelmke.net

"This book's 6th Edition is indeed a worthy inheritor to those that have come before it and carries on the tradition of providing A Desktop Quick Reference for Linux shell commands and utilities. If you've owned a prior edition, this update is now available as a replacement. If you are learning Linux administration for the first time and have the basics down, you're ready to buy this edition as your first experience to Linux in a Nutshell."
-- James Pyles, Million Chimpanzees

"There are chapters that cover just about every aspect of system administration and development including boot loaders, the bash shell, different editors, gawk programming, version control and virtualization. In short something for everyone in a desktop reference!"
-- Rick Gatewood, MELUG Mid-Coast

"...an extensive reference for any serious computer collection."
-- James A. Cox, California Bookwatch: The Computer Shelf

"In few words, Linux in a Nutshell is a complete reference that you should always have on your desk, even if you're a linux 'power user' or a system administrator."
-- Celestino Bellone, JUG Lugano Book Reviews
