"Success in publising depends upon knowing your potential readers and meeting their needs. Seldom has a book illustrated this principle so clearly as Mac OS X for UNIX Geeks. Within the first page we learn how to change the behavior of bash to conform to POSIX 1003, I standard. By this point the casual browser knows exactly whether they will purchase the book or not. "
--Gavin Inglis, UKUUG Newsletter March 2009

"It's a fast read that assumes--as the title implies--rather a lot of UNIX knowledge. With that requirement satisfied and this book in hand, you're likely to discover aspects of Aqua more quickly than you otherwise would have."
--Mirko Zorz, (IN) SECURE Magazine

"Mac OS X for Unix Geeks is an excellent resource for anyone with an interest in tapping into the power behind OS X, from geeks to firmly established command-line pros."
--Chris Seibold, author of Big Book of Apple Hacks

"For those attracted to the Mac in its Unix-based OS X incarnation, an O'Reilly title, Mac OS X Tiger for Unix Geeks, provides insights into the workings of OS X in a *nix environment and discusses compatability issues for Linux users...In the Terminal (Mac-speak for the command line) there is a wealth of Unix shells, tools, and applications. The book covers them all and provides plenty of example code and tabulated information."
