   Like others, I received a worn book
Considering the interior looks great, the actual content seems fine, and the fact that no Barnes and Noble has it in stock within 50 miles of me, I won 't return it. It is, however, ridiculous to purchase a new brand book with this amount of external wear. I'm going to tighten it this time, but whoever is responsible for this needs to slide.
   Very good book for Content Delivery Networks and Clouds
Book is very good for content delivery networks and cloud based networks. Then I worked for two. I now have my own network.
   So much in this book
I 'd give it a 5 star review, except that I feel that some things are glossed over. One example comes to mind when authors explain about creating partitions and file systems and then mounting them, they say be sure to put it in etcfstab, but then explain that you have to be root or show the format. For this file there is a specific format. The book is excellent other than a few small items such as this :
   The second used book sent to me.
Chad wrote my review for me basically. I am not sure that Wiley is the company that sends these ragged books to Amazon. I think Amazon is back to its dirty tricks of sending returned books to customers who order new books. I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for this egregious breach of the contract.
   Bad physical integrity
The information in this book is very useful and detailed. Kinda fishy for a new product line. This is the second time I received a crappy physical product from the Wiley publishing company through Amazon.
   Where's tcsh?
Blum and Bresenham provide a comprehensive look at bash, but fail to mention a shell that I use alongside bash tcsh every day. For a C and C++ programmer, tcsh is a useful CLI even when the programmer uses bash for larger scripts. A good book that covers both bash and tcsh in detail and clearly recognizes where they could be used is Mark Sobell's 4th edition of A Practical Guide to Linux. What it really comes down to is that tcsh is a good CLI, though not a great programming language. Completely ignoring this fact and focusing on bash and bash derivatives means this is not a Bible, it is just another Bash book.
