Going Deep with the Terminal and Shell. Dave Taylor is a popular writer focused on both business and technology.

Dave Taylor is a popular writer focused on both business and technology. I've been using windows OS mostly over the years so been fascinated to look into using OS X. I felt the book was fairly well guided for beginners. Founder of four Internet startups, author of twenty books, he's also an award-winning public speaker and film critic, when he's not busy being single dad to his three children. I would definitely recommend the book to anyone looking to getting started who haven't used the OS X terminal before.

  • Well organized, clearly written and usefully organized ... a great addition to my reference shelf.

    I switched from the various "Windows" embodiments about 4 years ago and have not yet touched bottom with my Mac ... a very rewarding journey. Because of the close connection between the Mac OS and Unix, I find close parallels between OS X "under the hood" and Unix: I am still exploring, with more to go.

    This book by Dave Taylor fits nicely into my interest zone and I am very pleased to have it ... if your interests parallel mine, I believe you will find it a rewarding addition to your book shelf.

  • Does get in to some very generic Unix/Linux/BSD info at many points, but does a great job on treatment of a lot of areas. Would have been nice if it focused on troubleshooting and support of common OSX issues that lend themselves toward a terminal solution, but this book is more about basic fluency. Some parts I would give a C+ to, some parts I would give an A+ to. The bulk of the book is more of an intro to using terminal overall. Great if you're not already familiar with using Unix/Linux/BSD even at the beginner level. Covers very few OS X-specific terminal commands though.

  • At the beginning of the book the author (Dave Taylor) mentions something towards if you already know how to do a few Linux commands (ls, dir, cd etc) then this book is probably too easy for you. I know the basics of Linux and I've learned a lot of new things I didn't know how to do or even existed from this book. Who knew there was a mdls command to list meta data of files? Thank you for this book together Dave. My next step is your shell scripting book!

  • Although I dabbled in UNIX (AIX) years ago, I am new to MAC. This is a great reference / starter book for people who want to get their feet wet. It also discussed the same functions being done within the MAC OX app (not terminal) along with advantages of doing them in Unix. It's enough for what I want to accomplish and a good start for those before advancing to more dangerous and complex commands.

  • I've been using Unix professionally since the late 70's. Having said that, I've been stuck on PC's for many years and was always wishing that I had a Unix command line for doing things. About a year ago, I bought a Mac Mini and have been loving having a Unix shell again! Many years of brain rot left me unsure of the fine details of some of my old favorites, and this book has been a nice dead tree version of the information that I need. The Mac's man pages are certainly a good resource, but sometimes I want something to hold in my hand and study for a while. Mr. Taylor did a nice job on this book, and I'm glad that I bought it.

  • I have been looking for a book on using the terminal under OS X for some time now, so finding this gem by Dave Taylor was a real treat. (Most "command line" books focus on Linus and software installation.) Also, I am about to begin learning C (and C++) programming and I want to brush up on my Unix skills. Mr. Taylor hit on just about every major area including searching, I/O, file management, networking and a very strong intro to the vi text editor. I just wish he'd covered something about programming (like the make command), but I can pick that up elsewhere. So, if you're looking for a solid introduction to the Unix command line under OS X (and I think every Mac user should learn to use the terminal) I would say "look no further 'cause you found it".

  • I wasn't knocked out by the book, but that doesn't mean it isn't good. I have forty years of programming experience and have worked with Unix on Sun Microsytems systems. Remember those? I got the book to refresh me on the Unix commands. The author did a good job of explaining them, in my case a little too simplistic. The level is probably perfect for a beginner.

  • As one who has always wanted to become skillful in use of the OS X Terminal Application, I am enjoying this book as an introduction to it. I hope that a future edition includes a CD, or link to a Website, providing video illustrations of much of the subject matter.
