A well read title but content and attention to detail was somewhat lacking. To say an overview of the operating system is an over statement itself. Does not go into real detail of the history and how it formulated, rather than "it mentions it" and is basically a walkthrough of different distros which could spark further research by the reader. In depth analysis, technical insight or actual real life review is not covered in this title. Was very disappointed, plus then to end with a rolling credit on other titles like "how to make money" was a bit of an insult.
