    Comments about oreilly Linux Bible, 8th Edition:

    This book is by far the best I have read about Linux systems. It covers everything you need to know; from basic BASH, to controlling services, user management, and job control.

    If you need an introduction to Linux, or are even moderately familiar with Linux, this book is a good buy.
