Absolutely Fantastic Book

I forgot to review the book after receiving it. Now, I've almost finished this book and I must say the whole book was pleasure to read. The chapters are small so that you can finish it one sitting. There are a lot of exercise in the end so that you have better understanding. The best thing about the book is, it introduces the problem first and make it super clear in 2-3 sentence (under CRUX section) and then proceeds with the solution. So whenever you're reading you've clear idea about what kind of problem it'll solve.

There are many aside notes, which is fun to read.

Also, they add a commentary for every citation, which is fun to read as well.

Now coming back to pothi platform. Pothi took more than 2-3 week to deliver it, may be due to Corona situation. Also, there is no easy way to track the order. Hopefully, these issues will be solved over time.

I appreciate taking the initiative to publish such books.

Very costly

This is a great book and unlike other operating systems books like the dinosaur book, it feels practical. There are tips and suggestions on tools that are very interesting and would help in exploring your installed OS better.
There are code examples too of high quality.
Since the book is already free, I think printing out PDFs would be cheaper than the book itself and moreover the content will have updates too!
