“How Linux Works” By Brian Ward, 2nd Edition.


A must for anyone looking to get into Linux

This book is for anyone who is interested in learning Linux. With that said, I highly recommend that you have a solid foundation when it comes to computers and be willing to learn and to follow along.

The chapters are grouped into three basic sections. The first part is introductory, giving you a bird’s-eye view of the system and then offering hands-on experience with some tools you’ll need for as long as you run Linux. Next, you’ll explore each part of the system in more detail, from device management to network configuration, following the general order in which the system starts. Finally, you’ll get a tour of some pieces of a running system, learn some essential skills, and get some insight into the tools that programmers use.

The content is detailed and informative while the exercises are engaging and practical. This book has a lot to offer and it’s the reader’s responsibility on how much they want out of it. I highly recommend anyone reading this book to have a Linux machine to work with so that they can follow along with the exercises.
