"I have seen several quick-reference books for UNIX, but none of them has stayed near my desk for long. UNIX in a Nutshell, however, will be chained to the desk and hooked to an alarm. It is an amazing book that provides summaries of command-line arguments and internal syntax for a host of UNIX utilities.

"The lay-flat binding is solid enough to withstand repeated use, and the price is so low that I called O'Reilly & Associates to confirm it. A well-organized, 444-page reference work for $10?.... If I were running a programming shop, I'd buy copies for all my programmers, if only to avoid custody battles." --Richard Morin, Unix Review, August 1993
