    Perhaps the members here are too sophisticated for this, but for those of us with less experience, this book is a Godsend.
    The Linux Phrasebook by Scott Granneman is unlike any other Linux book I have seen.
    It explains the commands in a conversational manner, much as a knowledgable friend would, with examples, and clear concise language. Mr. Granneman being an educator attacks the subject in a vastly different manner than the guru's whose work I find difficult to understand.
    I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to any neophite, and even more advanced Linux users.

    Any short examples you can give us or point us to? I'm a visual person when it comes to understanding things.

    That reminds me that I'm like 3 or 4 months behind in my Linux Journal reading.

    It seems the second edition is due to be published in January. I think I'll get the pdf edition this time. The problem I have with the Linux books is that they are mostly out of date by the time they are published. Every single openSUSE book I bought references older versions. Things are changing too quickly.

    Yes they do change fast, and unfortunately it takes lots of time to get a book out the door.

    Greetings all! I have had a copy of Scott Granneman's Linux Phrasebook since I started using Linux in 2006 and I too highly recommend it. Very clear, organized and useful.
    Take care, Jim.
