As an author, editor, and publisher, I never paid much attention to the competitionexcept in a few cases. This is one of those cases. The UNIX System Administration Handbook is one of the few books we ever measured ourselves against.

Tim OReilly, founder of OReilly Media

This edition is for those whose systems live in the cloud or in virtualized data centers; those whose administrative work largely takes the form of automation and configuration source code; those who collaborate closely with developers, network engineers, compliance officers, and all the other worker bees who inhabit the modern hive.

Paul Vixie, Internet Hall of Fame-recognized innovator and founder of ISC and Farsight Security

This book is fun and functional as a desktop reference. If you use UNIX and Linux systems, you need this book in your short-reach library. It covers a bit of the systems history but doesnt bloviate. Its just straight-forward information delivered in a colorful and memorable fashion.
