    Reviews

    “Hands-on tutorials to popular free software are fairly common. What distinguishes this short (142 page) book is its coherent and concise explanation of foundational concepts. … The index is decent. For the newbie, this brief introduction will be useful.” (David Bellin, Computing Reviews, April, 2016)
