"If you are an administrator, project organizeer or data monkey (a term for system admins who push files in a digital video shop) you should check out this book. "
-- Lee McKusick, Peninsula Linux Users' Group

"If you are a Python advocate who is also responsible on occasion with managing your home or company computers, the book provides enough ideas and enthusiasm to jumpstart that currently manual system administrator task that begs to be automated."
-- Mike Riley, Dr. Dobb's CodeTalk

"This fabulous book will help you to read text files and extract information, run tasks using threading and forking options, get clickable GUI utilities, monitor large clusters of machines by interacting with SNMP programmatically, master the IPython shell...and much more."
-- Nadia Russ, Wonderpedia

"...a very helpful digest of many answers to common problems often encountered by sysadmins. The great benefit of all of their solutions is that they harness the power of Python to perform critical, complex tasks very easily and consistently. Like Thanos Vassilakis, a programmer for NYSE, if you know a sysadmin who spends too much time at work, chances are they could use Python and this book to reclaim their personal life. "
-- Al Lukaszewski, About.com

"Perfect for Unix and Linux programmers and collections catering to them."
-- Diane C. Donovan, California Bookwatch: The Computer Shelf
