Summary: Excellent tutorial and study guide
Comment: If you're interested in getting Linux certification or just want to learn more about your Linux system, this book was written with you in mind.

It assumes nothing and takes the reader through an introduction to Linux and then methodically works from installation to command line usage to enabling servers.

The material is written in an easy-to-read style and the author writes in a way so that you get a decent grasp of the material presented.

In fact, if I had to recommend the one book for a Linux newbie that is meaty yet easy to digest, it would be this tome.

Highly recommended!

Summary: Excellent for the beginner
Comment: When I decided that I wanted to learn about Linux I started out by buying one of the "Linux for Dummies" books. The only problem was that it did not cover all the topics and what it did cover seemed more like a light overview. So I ended up signing up for a Unix (Linux) class at a local college and Wells' book was the textbook. It's an excellent book for beginners. It assumes no prior knowledge of Linux/Unix and explains everything you need to know. All topics are covered thoroughly. If you are not lucky enough to have access to a Linux class that you can take at your local college, you could probably just read this book and learn a great deal by self-study. By the way, we used this book to learn the general concepts, but also used "Linux In A Nutshell" by Ellen Sievers as our reference for all of the commands. Both books together will definitely cover most everything you need to know in order to become Linux-literate.
