It's good. It goes over each proof and algorithm in depth. You can read the bigger headers for a refresher/overview and then dive into the nitty gritty.

Even a sub human lunk like me can get it.

The practice problems are also challenging if you're into that sort of thing.

It's good for understanding what your getting into and planning your steps for going into a job.

It can't cover everything and doesn't try to. It covers shit like, get your backups working, make sure you secure your network, get your audits rolling and check them, how to get started automating, getting a ticketing system, how to handle customers. Nothing in depth but it's a good starter, and probably the book I refer back to the most since I google most everything else.

When was YOUR bible revised the last time? Every bible is continuously revised to fit modern language, politically correct language (wife beater arguments have vanished every now and then), and other religious views that just don't fit modern societies and laws.
But i guess you already knew that in your certainly more than 15 year life span, anons.
You pathetic religious cunts.

Not only have I read it, I have
a) understood it in its terms of historical context and target groups
b) additionally read about it (secondary literature)

That's what seperates me from you miserable mongoloid fucktards.
Also don't mind my language, it does nothing short of misrepresent my understanding of the things discussed here, it merely reflects your own beings reacting to nothing else but this very language.
