Media praise for Learning the bash Shell
"Exceptionally well presented, but the reader needs to be motivated to learn shell programming. That is not to say the book is complex and requires some particular background knowledge; shell programming--whether bash or any other of the Unix/Linux shells--is a powerful tool that requires focus. The effort is well worth while, and this is the best from which to start."

"This third edition serves as the most valuable guide yet to the bash shell."
