    1. A nice, quick-and-dirty introduction (or reminder!) to Linux, mostly via the command-line interface. Won't get you any professional certifications, but it will keep you from having to hit Google every time you're not sure what you're doing.

    2. Great introduction to Linux. As the title indicates this is not a comprehensive guide to Linux, but touches the basics of the operating system, including navigating the file system, manipulating files, connecting to other nodes, writing bash scripts. Despite the fact I have been using Linux/Unix systems for ±3 years I found some nifty tips about programs I use on a daily basis. I can recommend it to anyone who recently started working with Linux/Unix.

    3. Awesome referenceYou'll constantly be referring back to this book for guidance! Great help learning and for re-enforcing learning. Easy to use and search for what you're looking for.

    4. Good reference book for linux commands. Helps shed light on shell programs. A great book on the bookshelf or next to you when you need to code

    7. What's not to like? Its cheap, small, and to the point. Extremely handy. Between Cisco IOS, Linux/Unix, scripting languages and shellcodes its very easy to forget or mix up commands. This is the perfect handbook to pull out whenever you need it, and the commands are presented in a logical order, where they are easy to find.

    8. Man pages with clear elaborationSnapshot of man pages with clearer elaboration on each command. Sufficient pocket guide and quick command argument recalling, hopefully next edition contains detailed examples of command usage

    9. Short little reference book (274 pages) that is handy to keep around. A quick read to provide context for the basics and pique interest in further reading.

    10. Pretty good guide, more a reference manual to keep on the side when using Linux. It doesn't cover everything, but it covers the useful one.

    11. Well organized, terribly useful, mostly still relevant, and good for a few laughs. What more could one want in a Linux Pocket Guide?
