Your UNIX: The Ultimate Guide is both an outstanding pedagogical tool and an exhaustive reference. It is the ideal text for any Unix course. It can also be used for any introductory programming course that includes Unix and for advanced courses such as those on Operating Systems and System Administration.
Excellent pedagogy is implemented throughout. Real-world examples make it easier for students to grasp concepts while "Going Further" sections take more advanced students beyond the basics. Over nine hundred exercises allow students to test and reinforce their understanding of material at different levels. This book also features coverage of Linux, which is well marked so that instructors can choose to either include it in their courses or omit it. Additionally, Your UNIX has the most extensive set of indices and appendices currently available in a Unix text.
