Book Review: UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook, 5th Edition

I love Linux and I always considered myself an Open Source enthusiast. After reading “The Practice of System and Network Administration”, I decided to add this must-read book to my list.

The contents are well organised and good not only for beginners and junior system administrators but I think there are very interesting takeaways for more experienced professionals too.

The choice of topics it’s well balanced between the linux/unix fondamentals of the OS architecture (Boot process, Access Control, Process control, FS) and the usual practices of a system administrator (software and user management, networking, logging and so on). Indeed, the quality of the contents and the examples used in this book made it a pleasure to read and again highly recommended. I appreciate the humour and the comic pictures included were really a surprise and a nice bonus.
