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.

Where does Linux for Beginners rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the best technical audio book I've listened to to date - the content is clearly delivered. Technical examples have an exquisite balance between being overly simple (dull) and unnecessarily complicated (so that you can't follow them in audio format). If you're familiar with DOS and have a vague understanding of the existence of Linux then this book is for you. There's enough content to listen to in one go, scattered with more advanced examples you'll want to return to once you've had some time to experiment with the basics.
