If you could sum up Linux for Beginners in three words, what would they be?
Would you ever listen to anything by Jason Cannon again?
What does Brian E. Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The problem is that I don't think I would have read the book. That is why audiobooks are so important. They allow the undisciplined to use the otherwise unproductive time in the car to pick up a new skill. I didn't believe it was possible to create an effective audiobook on this topic, but it was done
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
This is not a book for the big screen.

Teaches basics and gives enough so anyone could be set up for success
it's been close to 10 years since I've worked on Linux systems. I listened to Linux for beginners as a refresher for the LFCS exam. narration was clear and concise. although there was some times when the commands got quite complex to listen to it was surprising how well you could absorb the audio
Easier to maintain the knowledge after listening than just reading the same material. Awesome narration!
