This is a terribly written review. Multiple grammatical errors, and not much of an explanation of why this is or isn't a good book to go out and buy. Lame. I could have done much better.

You say you could have done much better? Why didn't you?

What is there to prevent you from submitting a review that you feel is better? Critics tend to knock creative people because they cannot create anything themselves. Put your money where your mouth is and post a better review.

I will hold off deciding whether to buy the book until you have had your say.

Webinar
Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
