The Unix and Linux System Administration Handbook

The Unix and Linux System Administration Handbook and the Linux system Administration Handbook are two of the best handbooks for system administrators ever written.
The Unix and Linux System Administration Handbook is a joint effort by four authors: Evi Nemeth, Garth Snyder, Trent R. Hein, and Ben Whaley.

The handbook is now in it’s fourth edition.

It’s actually a combination of two separate books – one on Unix and the other about Linux, which have now been combined into one single edition.

The Linux only version is also still available as a third edition.

If you’re a Unix or Linux system administrator then these are two books you should definitely keep close to hand on your desk.

You can purchase a copy of these excellent handbooks and read reviews of both books at
