Summary: typos typos and typos
Comment: You would find quite a lot of typos, such as missing quotes, incorrect quote-types, merged characters (-- become a lightly longer -), in this book.

Summary: Solid foundation for Bash/Linux Scripting
Comment: This book, unlike some of the other Bash books on the market, has very accessible and complete examples. It goes beyond simple explanations, but manages to start with the most basic concepts. My only complaint is that it is very text-heavy. Anyone who used Bash on a regular basis, even if they think they are advanced, will find something useful in this book - but if you are new to Bash, the text might be a little too dense. Easier to read than the man pages, and worth the effort, but it will take effort.

Overall, one of the best current books on the subject.

Summary: Well-motivated guide to use of Bash for scripting
Comment: This is pretty comprehensive book that guides the reader on how to use Bash for a wide variety of purposes.

It is very well-motivated; each chapter introduces the area it examines with an interesting anecdote, and presents a reasonably rich set of examples of how to use Bash along with other Unix tools to solve the problem at hand.

It is not solely about Bash; it shows the use of process control tools like ps, kill, and such, text manipulation tools like grep, sort, cut, sed, and such, and version control using CVS. This is all well and proper: One of the major uses of shell scripting is to paste together other programs, and these examples support that.

Well done...
