If you're looking for a tutorial introduction to the UNIX operating
system, then you've probably already heard about my book "Teach
Yourself UNIX In A Week". Whether you have or not, you'll doubtless be
glad to hear about a special back to school promotion that the
publisher is offering for Internet members: 20% off the cover price!
"Teach Yourself UNIX In A Week" is over 700 pages of tutorial
introduction to this complex and powerful operating system, including
hundreds of examples -- even mistakes and how to correct them. The
topic coverage is quite extensive, with a long discussion of Usenet,
gopher, email, FTP, UNIX programming tools, both 'vi' and EMACS,
and much, much more.
The cover price of "Teach Yourself UNIX in a Week" is $28.00, so that
means the promotional price is therefore $22.40 (and with 714 pages, it
works out to a reasonable 3 cents per page! :-)
You can place an order by:
* calling SAMS toll-free order line: (800) 428-5331
* FAXing to Jordan Gold from overseas: (317) 581-4669
Please make sure to mention the "TYU" promotion to get the special
Internet users price!
* If you're an instructor looking for a text to recommend for your
* students, then we're definitely interested in hearing from you,
* and your students will be glad you've chosen a friendly, easy
* to understand and comprehensive introduction to UNIX.
