Book Review: Essential System Administration

This is the latest edition of the book that taught me to be a Unix administrator. Her descriptions were understandable, and her procedures were well-explained. And throughout the book, Frisch explained the mindset that every professional system administrator needs to bring to the job.

The book has expanded with each edition, and there is increased information about different Unix-like Operating System options. In particular, the coverage of Linux and AIX has increased in successive editions of the book.

But the beating heart of the book has not changed. This is the book that encapsulates the essence of what it means to be a professional system administrator.
