"If only it was called Terminal for OS X" - by Damien on 01-OCT-2012

A great guide book for anyone trying to learn about Terminal. If only the book was called Terminal instead of Learning Unix, then perhaps more people might buy it.

I found the detail great, some of the commands I'll never use, but this is the best MANual you can find.
