Publisher's Summary

Are you tired of seeing Windows...well, everywhere?
Do you feel like it’s getting a bit boring to use?
Maybe you’re simply looking for customization. After all, you want your PC to be personal. If the answer to these questions is yes, then keep reading....

Do you enjoy having total control over your device?
Do you feel like your operating system has been limiting you?
Are you looking for a change of pace? 

If your answer to these questions is yes, then Linux might be just the thing for you. This isn’t a book for tech geeks. It won’t teach you programming or hacking. Rather, this is a book for someone that enjoys using their PC for what it was made to do. 

Sure, after listening to this book you might move on to programming or hacking, but as the saying goes, you have to learn to walk before you learn to run. This book will teach you to walk. We’ll be going over all of the important basic parts of Linux, ranging from Distros (“flavors” of Linux, each of which has different properties) to microkernels. This book is meant to be a comprehensive beginner’s guide to Linux. 

Everything you need to know in order to start your Linux journey is found within this audiobook.

A wonderful read

It was a very insightful read, with the more technical stuff I wished I had the physical copy.

Needs PDF to follow along

This is a good book but once they start getting into certain syntaxes it gets real confusing and hard to follow. An attached .pdf would really be helpful.

I love it and suggest it!

Linux for beginners doesn't make any assumptions about your background or knowledge of Linux. You need no prior knowledge to benefit from this audio book.

Amazing book!

This is a amazing book. Easier to maintain the knowledge after listening than just listening the same material. Awesome narration!

Surprised that text based subject sounded so good!

it's been close to 10 years since I've worked on Linux systems. I listened to Linux for beginners as a refresher for the LFCS exam. Narration was clear and concise. Although there was some times when the commands got quite complex to listen to it was surprising how well you could absorb the audio book.

This is an excellent introduction to Linux

This is an excellent introduction to Linux. It's brief enough to be listen in an afternoon and yet has enough detail to actually get a newbie using the command line to manage files, edit text, inspect and stop processes.

This book is fabulous

This book is fabulous, I figured this book would be littler than it really is, it truly shocked me, this book clarifies everything a fledgling has to know.

Most of it is endless command lines..

I'm sure this is a great book, really. But if you think you can listen to this while driving or going for a walk, think again.

The format just don't work as an audiobook. They should have referred to a website where they posted all the command lines. What's the purpose of reading command lines for several minutes straight like a robot. People who choose listening can't follow or remember it anyways. The first two chapters was great! After that you'll spend most of the time skipping in hope to find more explanation of what Linux is and how it works.
