I’m a like late to the party, but I’d recommend all three of them.Hello everybody
I was thinking of buying one of these books for christmas. Would you recommend them?
How Linux Works, 3rd Edition: What Every Superuser Should Know
The Linux Command Line, 2nd Edition: A Complete Introduction
The Linux command line and Linux Bible are both great general reference books for any Linux users.
And How Linux Works goes into a lot of detail about how Linux works under the hood. So you can understand what happens at each step from a cold boot, right through to the user logging into the desktop.
If memory serves, it also has chapters on system administration, scripting and compiling software from source.
I’ve mentioned this several times, but HumbleBundle.com regularly sell bundles of Linux and tech-related ebooks. Often you’ll get 15-20 books for less than you’d normally pay for one book.
They also sell book bundles that have other themes - popular manga, graphic novels, comics, fiction, fantasy, self-help, survival, cookery etc.
Over the last four or five years, I’ve built up a huge e-library for next to nothing from buying their book bundles. So I’d highly recommend bookmarking humblebundle.com and taking a look at their book bundles every now and then.
