Title: Linux Administration Handbook
Publisher: Prentice Hall PTR
Authors: Evi Nemeth, Garth Snyder, Trent R. Hein
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Another excellent book by our friends, Evi, Garth and Trent.

Just got this book and opened it to the security chapter with the purple, Unix System Admin Handbook opened to the same chapter. The new Linux Admin Handbook follows the exact same, time-tested layout as the Unix book. Fans will feel right at home. However, it has lots of new info for Linux users.
This is a great overview of the useful and important things you need to know.
If you are new to Linux, I recommend this be your second book. Your first book should teach you how to install Linux and get your system up and running with an overview of all the basics.
My two favorite things about this book is that it is very easy to read compared to other tech books and it gives you what you need very quickly without diving into a ?rabbit hole? of impractical information.
Thank you Evi, Garth and Trent.

Title: Java 2: The Complete Reference, Fifth Edition
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media

This book has repaid itself.

The scale of Java classes means this book can never cover everything, however it surpasses all java code reference books that I have seen (especially Java Unleashed). The book is crammed with code cheats you can pillage, many of which I have adapted for my own programs. For instance, an data-warehousing prog with a retrieval GUI/servlet with all the attendant classes involved.
This is not a textbook for learners and does not go into depth like O'Reilly's. But it is a great book for both learners and programmers alike.
Other Java book recommendations - Mughal&Rasmussen, Java in a Nutshell. Happy hacking!
