This book is essentially a decade's worth of notes from an experienced network security engineer or pen tester. It looks like someone published an evernote notebook. Formatting is inconsistent and at times confusing. There is a fair amount of duplication. Placeholders are inconsistent. There is no descriptive text or explanatory notes. It is a list of commands, and nothing more.
If you are an experienced command line user, it is pretty awesome.
That said, with around 2000 commands in the book, there in exactly one page of index. It is impossible to find anything. If it is windows, that's great, narrows things down to about 30 pages that you have to flip through to find what you want. Even though I often know exactly what I am looking for, I still end up flipping through nearly every page in the book to find it. That is frustrating.
It's true that everything here can be found elsewhere online, but that's a lot like saying that a thesaurus is just a list of words that you can find online. The proper formatting of actually useful DOS net commands, for instance, is a great example of why the book is more useful than a Google search.
I'd say this is pretty much a must-own book for anyone that has to work with computers. If you are in charge of security or testing, even better. I wish it was better indexed, but can't have everything. Certainly worth the money.
The only complaint I have is that the cover is flat black and looks like crap with your fingerprints. I cleaned mine real good with moist towelettes then dried it good until it looked like new, then spray coated it with two coats of Deft semi-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.
The satin may be a better choice though if you want to keep that flat look. Allow it to dry for ten minutes between coats, then flip over and do the other side. This will protect your book from fingerprints and smudges, and keep it looking better than new.
