Praise for Previous Editions of The Official Ubuntu Book
“The Official Ubuntu Book is a great way to get you started with Ubuntu, giving you enough information to be productive without overloading you.”
—John Stevenson, DZone book reviewer
“OUB is one of the best books I’ve seen for beginners.”
—Bill Blinn, TechByter Worldwide
“This book is the perfect companion for users new to Linux and Ubuntu. It covers the basics in a concise and well-organized manner. General use is covered separately from troubleshooting and error-handling, making the book well suited both for the beginner as well as the user who needs extended help.”
—Thomas Petrucha, Austria Ubuntu User Group
“I have recommended this book to several users who I instruct regularly on the use of Ubuntu. All of them have been satisfied with their purchase and have even been able to use it to help them in their journey along the way.”
—Chris Crisafulli, Ubuntu LoCo Council, Florida Local Community Team
“This text demystifies a very powerful Linux operating system. . . . In just a few weeks of having it, I’ve used it as a quick reference a half-dozen times, which saved me the time I would have spent scouring the Ubuntu forums online.”
—Darren Frey, Member, Houston Local User Group
“This is a book that the new Ubuntu user would find helpful in getting started and the more experienced computer user would find informative enough to keep as a reference manual. I also enjoyed the computing humor.”
—Dr. Gregory Chapelle, General Atomics, Electromagnetics Division, San Diego, California
“In short, this book is something that I can honestly recommend to anyone using Ubuntu. It works great as a reference and equally well as a how-to guide. I respect the work that’s been done, and I can’t overstate how knowledgeable the authors are, as well as the reviewers.”—Paul Tagliamonte, Ubuntu Member, and Debian Developer

The book is a beginners guide to Linux and Ubuntu. It will be easily accessible to someone who has have never used Linux before. I think somewhere in the title it should have mentioned the book is for novices as I was expecting a more advanced user guide. Despite this, this book still contains a lot of valuable information and I found it to be a nice read.
The first chapter had an excellent introduction to the story of Ubuntu and the goals of the project. Chapter two covered installation as the book comes with a DVD.
Later on common software was introduced. It was helpful to see what the recommended programs to use were but on some of these there was too many basic details. For example, there are two image editors introduced and a lot of screen shots showing the basic functionality of image editors.
Chapter seven got into the command line and the explanations here were very good. The book covers common commands that desktop users will need.
Towards the end of the book Ubuntu Server was introduced. The explanations here were more advanced assuming you have knowledge of system administration. The last part of the book offers ways to get involved in the Ubuntu project along with many links for further information.
I appreciated the authors' enthusiasm for the operating system and their writing style was fluid. It would be nice if every OS had an introduction like this. I think the book title needs to state that it is for beginners, as I was expecting a comprehensive manual about Ubuntu.
One of the many aspects of the text I like the most is the explanation and instruction about how to use the command line. I have found that there are tips and help for troubleshooting when you need it. There are a ton of other features and help that's within the text that is completely understandable and easily digestible information and instructions.
I am, currently, using the Ubuntu Studio version that includes everything I need to edit photos, video, and audio.
Honestly, the authors are brilliant and this book is the best Linux book for learning and understanding the operating system I have ever purchased. I would highly recommend this if you about to embark on installing and using Ubuntu Linux. Of all the versions or "flavors" of Linux I have used, Ubuntu is my most favorite of them all. It's a book you purchase and keep permanently for the reference material alone and because it was so well written and how the subject matter is presented.
This is the only book you will need to get started with Ubuntu Linux. It even includes the DVD installation disk, too.
Update: the printer contacted me to offer me a replacement disk, and even though it won't help me now, the proactive approach impressed me with their service focus.
Second update: After a bit of conversation over email with the printer, I am so impressed with the customer service and the resolution to fixing my experience with the book that I will go out of my way to buy books by prentice pearson in the future when I need IT publications. No manufacturer or printer is perfect, every one will have an occasional QA mess up slip through, but their willingness to go above and beyond to proactively provide warranty service quickly and in such a friendly way was very impressive. I have received that level of service sometimes but not all the time, and CS and good tech support are my highest priorities. I would give them five stars but lately most of the five star reviews I read are clearly not completely reputable. Four stars, for me, is a six star rating for others.
