post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Has anyone created a thread for recommended books about anything *nix related? Is there interest in a thread like that? If so I'm good with making it this thread and keeping everything organized. I was thinking the books would be placed into categories based on the topic and the perhaps have a sentence or two describing why the book is recommended. We could even put links to the book's website or amazon page if that's something people want.

For instance, something like:

Sudo Mastery: Access Control for Real People by Michael W Lucas
A fairly short (130 pages) ebook that provides a very good and well-written grounding in how to use sudo properly. It goes over in detail various problems that can be solved with sudo and how to create the sudo policies properly so people can't break out of sudo restrictions.
Book site: https://www.michaelwlucas.com/nonfiction/sudo-mastery

You can add it to my thread if you feel it is appropriate, but if your looking for a dedicated thread to Unix/Linux you can always have this as your thread to do it in, no harm in it.

Wow I didn't know that thread existed. Cool though. I'm kinda thinking that I'd like it to be *nix specific. That way the recommendations don't have to be sysadmin related, though I know a lot probably will be. I picked the sudo book as the example because I'm reading it right now. Either way though I'll post the sudo book in your thread because it definitely is relevant to *nix sysadmins, though I really think anyone who uses a *nix machine, even as a desktop, can benefit greatly from learning how to properly setup sudo.

Sure thing man, Im more oriented around Server 2008 myself but definitely interested in getting into Unix/Linux based systems

Please lets not add forum specific stuff to that thread. It's messy enough as it is

I can't really see how. visudo is very much a sysadmin's tool

But I agree with your sentiment about keeping *nix stuff in the *nix forum.
