Overview

Aimed at the beginner/intermediate Unix user, this book shows you how to quickly become a productive Unix user. In addition, this book goes beyond the basics to introduce concepts such as the Internet and electronic mail.

The fourth edition expands this best-selling book. We've added coverage of the bash shell, and expanded the sections on the Internet, World Wide Web, and electronic mail.

The fourth edition follows a very different, IDG style for the "Teach Yourself" series. Most topics are now described on easy to read two-page spreads.

Teach Yourself Unix makes a perfect companion for Unix in Plain English
