[REVIEW]: [REVIEW] "Linux in a Nutshell"

Sorry everybody, but I just _have_ to join the shameless plugging, 
as I too am very enthousiastic about this book.

But I think it _is_. 

Sorry to waste bandwith on a not-strictly-Debian subject, but this book 
answers a lot of not-strictly-Debian questions on the list. If more people 
read it, there would be less not-strictly-Debian questions and hopefully 
more answers in general.
I think that if you're a beginner to Linux and you installed it for keeps, 
it is a very good idea to get this book.

Well, dpkg(8) is missing, but that's actually not a toll: everytime it gets upgraded 
you have to print the manpage yourself and fold it into the book.  :-)
