About the Author

Standing over six feet tall, Jonathan Moeller has the piercing blue eyes of a Conan of Cimmeria, the bronze-colored hair a Visigothic warrior-king, and the stern visage of a captain of men, none of which are useful in his career as a computer repairman, alas.

He has written the "Demonsouled" trilogy of sword-and-sorcery novels, and continues to write the "Ghosts" sequence about assassin and spy Caina Amalas, the "$0.99 Beginner's Guide" series of computer books, and numerous other works.

This author has done a great job explaining the core basics of linix terminal in a way that is easy to understand and test. If you want a primer on using the most common commands in terminal this book is worth your dollar... i would love a follow up on intermediate commands and their uses. Grep, piping, whatever else! Great, common sense read
