I've got to be honest in saying that I did not read this cover to cover, but instead, scanned over it to get a general working knowledge of what I would need know to work in systems administration. If you have no idea what linux administration entails, then this is a good start. You can take each subject further supplemental reading and research.

Like most technical books, this is not something I will read once and set aside, but rather use as a reference over and over (I am not a systems admin, but a motivated end user). Even though I haven't yet read it through I'm giving it five stars; the parts I have read are thorough, relatively easy to understand, and sprinkled with a pinch of humor--something that helps an otherwise dry subject matter go down easier, so to speak. Definitely recommended.
Perfect book on Linux/Unix administration (although BSD is missing, not very important, we have Michael Lucas).
Very detailed (1300 pages), personal experiences shared on various topics and nice humor :)

One of the greatest books for every sysadmin.
not designed to teach you how to run Linux in your basement.
this book is targeted to larger system deployments and real world large systems.
Good review/reference. Just searching the internet for specific things is probably better, but sometimes it's good to have everything in one place.

Edit: Great for tests. Memorize!
