Book to improve Linux skills

#1 Post by coppolino97 »

Hi all,
probably this title is too much generic.
I am 23 years old and I am a junior network administrator since 3 years
I like to much server management too, but I usually works on Windows Server and sometime I use some Linux distro such as Debian or Ubuntu Server.
I feel that I like it very much, but my skill sometime are really too low in my opinion.

Someone of you has read some book to improve our skill in this world?

Thanks so much!

For general command line stuff try,_Part_1 (all four parts), it's a bit dated but still mostly relevant.

For Debian try
Black Lives Matter

The Linux Documentation Project (TLDP) has a collection of guides. Some are a bit dated, but quite relevant. Especially BASH stuff.

Check the second hand bookstores in your area. I like Running Linux.

Sobell's Practical Guide to LINUX Commands, Editors and Shell Programming is one I like. Bought already two editions of same book.
