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.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
