"This 3rd edition is revised and expanded, and part of [a] nutshell handbook series intended to get the complete computer novice up and running on a Unix or X-Windows system in a one-hour sitting. Rather that being an introduction to Unix, it's a 'how to use Unix' book. It's also filled with many of the little details and tricks the regular Unix Weenie knows by rote and does so regularly that they forget to tell anyone to tell newcomers. This is the kind of book you set in front of the keyboard in every University terminal room. If you are just beginning to use the Internet and need to understand how to start using Unix on a remote host -- buy this book. (It's actually a rather handy reference even if you've been long using the network." --Book Review, ISOC NEWS, November 1993
