Review quote

"Was ich wirklich gut fand sind die vielen Beispiele im Buch, [...] und dass man es als 'man page' Ersatz für eine Reihe von (eingebauten) Befehlen nutzen kann. Alles in allem ist es eine nützliche Referenz für jemanden, der ein bash-Befehl auf die Schnelle finden muss oder vergessen hat wie man in bash zwei Zahlen addiert." - IT-Stammtisch Darmstadt, Oktober 2010
