Rickford Grant and Phil Bull (eds.), Ubuntu Made Easy: A Project-Based Introduction (No Starch Press, 2012)
Full disclosure: this book was provided to me free of charge by Amazon Vine.
The word “Introduction” in the subtitle is very important here; this is definitely a book for Ubuntu beginners. If you’ve wandered around the OS for a couple of weeks or so, you’ve probably already discovered at least half of what’s here. Not that you don’t want to know the other half, but this is a book to pick up before you install Ubuntu for the first time; that’s when you’ll definitely get the most out of it. With more and more people getting away from the Windows/Mac world for the first time, there’s certainly a market for this. And if you’re looking to make that move, I recommend this highly, but if you’ve already installed and have been familiarizing yourself, you’re probably better off getting this one out of the library to fill in a few holes in your knowledge. *** ½
