Book Review: Linux Administration: A Beginner's Guide, Fourth Edition
Submitted by James Pyles
One of the things I look for in a beginner's guide is a well rounded content selection. When I'm trying to learn how to administer Linux, nothing is more frustrating than to pick up a book that's advertised as a complete guide, only to discover that either there are holes in the information base or that each subject is treated far too lightly to really learn anything. At first blush, Shah and Soyinka's Linux Administration: A Beginner's Guide 4th Edition is neither of these. Like most techs, I am a very linear thinker. I like my content to be well organized and easy to find. This is true whether I'm writing the content or reading it. Happily, Linux Administration is broken down into five broad categories or parts: Installing Linux as a Server, Single-Host Administration, Security and Networking, Internet Services, and Intranet Services. Chapters are organized under each category so no matter what I was looking for, I found it right at my fingertips.
