Praise for A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux®
"I am so impressed by how Mark Sobell can approach a complex topic in such an understandable manner. His command examples are especially useful in providing a novice (or even advanced) administrator with a cookbook on how to accomplish real-world tasks on Linux. He is truly an inspired technical writer!"
–George Vish II, Senior Education Consultant, Hewlett-Packard Company
"Overall, I think it's a great, comprehensive Ubuntu book that'll be a valuable resource for people of all technical levels."
–John Dong, Ubuntu Forum Council Member, Backports Team Leader
"The JumpStart sections really offer a quick way to get things up and running, allowing you to dig into the details of his books later."
–Scott Mann, Aztek Networks
"Ubuntu is gaining popularity at the rate alcohol did during prohibition, and it's great to see a well-known author write a book on the latest and greatest version. Not only does it contain Ubuntu-specific information, but it also touches on general computer-related topics, which will help the average computer user to better understand what's going on in the background. Great work, Mark!"
–Daniel R. Arfsten, Pro/ENGINEER Drafter/Designer
"I read a lot of Linux technical information every day, but I'm rarely impressed by tech books. I usually prefer online information sources instead. Mark Sobell's books are a notable exception. They're clearly written, technically accurate, comprehensive-and actually enjoyable to read."
–Matthew Miller, Senior Systems Analyst/Administrator, BU Linux Project, Boston University Office, of Information Technology
"I would so love to be able to use this book to teach a class about not just Ubuntu or Linux but about computers in general. It is thorough and well written with good illustrations that explain important concepts for computer usage."
–Nathan Eckenrode, New York Local Community Team
Praise for Other Books by Mark Sobell
"I currently own one of your books, A Practical Guide to Linux® . I believe this book is one of the most comprehensive and, as the title says, practical guides to Linux I have ever read. I consider myself a novice and I come back to this book over and over again."
–Albert J. Nguyen
"Thank you for writing a book to help me get away from Windows XP and to never touch Windows Vista. The book is great; I am learning a lot of new concepts and commands. Linux is definitely getting easier to use."
"I have been wanting to make the jump to Linux but did not have the guts to do so-until I saw your familiarly titled A Practical Guide to Red Hat® Linux® at the bookstore. I picked up a copy and am eagerly looking forward to regaining my freedom."
