Linux Pocket Guide, 2nd Edition

If you use Linux in your day-to-day work, this popular pocket guide is the perfect on-the-job reference. The second edition has expanded from Fedora-only coverage to distro-neutral, with practical information on a wider range of commands requested by readers.

Linux Pocket Guide provides an organized learning path for Linux use, rather than Linux programming and system administration. You’ll find options for the most useful commands, grouped by functionality. For novices who need to get up to speed on Linux use, and experienced users who want a concise and functional reference, this guide provides quick answers.
