My review of A Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming (3rd Edition)

I have read this book and can say that it contains a detailed and
thorough explanation of the Linux shell. It starts out with a history
lesson of the GNU/Linux operating system and features a detailed
explanation of how to interact with the shell via editors such as vim
and emacs. Further on, the author discusses scripting languages such as
Perl and Python. I can say that this book has allowed me to be able to
enhance my scripting skills because unlike other command line books, it
goes over programming languages as well, with a complete guide on how to
integrate them into the linux/unix shell. If you noticed how I just
included Unix as well, that is because it will also be helpful to osx
users wanting to ditch their mouse and take back their system as well.
This book has improved my work day in the shell and enhanced my
productivity. I would happily recommend it to anyone looking to improve
their productivity skills in the command line or even learn about the
command line as a beginner.The book can be bought at:
