Media praise for Linux Desktop Pocket Guide

"...a concise introduction to the management of Linux in a desktop environment...This is not a reference; it is a compact guide, and very good value."
-- Major Keary, Book News

"Author David Brickner, has written an outstanding mini guide to help you get the most out of your Linux experience...After reading this excellent book, you'll learn all about the graphical programs and desktop environments that run on top of Linux. This book doesn't shy away from difficult topics in Linux; instead, it jumps right in and tells you what you need to know about laptop power management, configuring your graphics card, and setting up sound and networking."
-- John Vacca,

"This is not an extensive technical reference to any of the Linux distributions discussed, but it is a good first resource for common questions and a good introduction to all of them...recommended for the average Linux user and a must-have guide for others who need to know the differences between the various distributions."
-- Harold McFarland, Harold's Bookshelf, Midwest Book Review
