best I've seen

As a teacher of JAVA programming, I have seen countless books that I review for resources or potential classroom sets. This is by far the most complete, well written and informed book that I have seen thus far. It has been the "goto" book in our lab, and it is my top choice for textbook adoption in an advanced programming class.

It lives up to its name

This book is very thorough. I thought that it was an excellent source of knowledge about the world of web services. So many other books are written for coding and don't give enough time to understanding the conceptual viewpoint. This would definitely be a good textbook. I would recommend it to software architects and project managers.

make clean; make index correct

I frequently refer to this book and have found it very useful and informative on just about every subject that is Linux. I would have given it 5 stars except that the index of the book is broken. I use the index of reference books, like all other admins, to quickly find the page of the subject for that I am looking. The page numbers that are referenced in the index are incorrect. This is VERY frustrating! This book shouldn't be the only Linux book on your shelf, but I do recommend having it.

Great Shell script book

The best book I have ever read on the subject.
The only think I could think to complain about is that
sometimes it was a little hard to follow.
I still give five stars, because the teaching style is great.
a little history, some basic commands, and into shell programing. When you finish the book you will know a lot about how the shell works, Job control and so on.
Also great for linux newbies, But I recamend reading sam`s teach yourself unix in 24 hours first, you will get a good basic understanding of the command line.
