I love this format.

"18.6 Using CVS for a Single-User Local Repository"
"18.9 Creating a Shared CVS Repository"

Each heading is followed by a short, direct description on how to do the task, complete with what to type in. It's the examples that man pages ought to have (if man pages weren't written by people who didn't need man pages, for people who didn't need man pages).

There are many, many, many things that have to be memorized in order to use Linux effectively. There are many more whose details
Obviously this is not a work of fiction that one reads through from beginning to end--but you would certainly learn a lot if you did so. Carla Schroder's technical writing is clear, simple, and presented in short "recipes" that are easy to understand, and not overwhelming if you're a Linux newbie.

On O'Reilly's web site there is an downloadable update to the Kindle edition (I can't speak to other ebook editions), but, caveat emptor, it is not free, though in my opinion reasonably priced.
