A fantastic book, from a fantastic series but the Narrator on these books is just excellent! He transports you through this magical book with what seems like hundreds of voices each one with their own little niche. Absolutely fantastic

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

The layout of this book is all wrong. It's supposed to give you a walkthrough on commands etc.. but doesn't. Intead of reading out the commands and syntax you need to configure the cisco equipment, the narrator refers to documents and articles that are obviously in the book but not available in the audio book. This is a terrible layout. He also refers in the book to the section where he shows you how to perform a base configuration on cisco devices, however, he doesn't go into this at all. Either this is just left out to in the audio book or it's referred to in a diagram that we have no access too. Also, The chapters are mixed up in order. He explains tha the next chapter is "Cisco configuration" and then continues to go to on to access lists etc.. I'm sure the book is a good read when you have access to the documents and reference images that come with the book. However, this just doesn't work in Audiobook format.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, the information was good, but the fact that he refers very little of the configuration syntax and commands is very bad. Definitely not good for exam practice.

Knowing where to start when learning a new skill can be a challenge, especially when the topic seems so vast. There can be so much information available that you can't even decide where to start. Or worse, you start down the path of learning and quickly discover too many concepts, commands, and nuances that aren't explained. What you learn in Linux for Beginners applies to any Linux environment including Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, RedHat, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Slackware, and more.
