This article very well written
Debian still (to this day) lacks of good books and documentation which is really needed because it usually doesn't follow the same path as other distros. If I ever take the step to go back and try out Debian, it will be only after I put my hands on a good book... I guess I will start with this one, I saw the TOC and is quite well organized and targeted only for Debian users/admins.
Hi, it's try. Respect!

The first 66 pages consist of vague philosophizing and OSS cheerleading, with section titles like "The importance of free speech." A lot of the time, I felt like the book was launching into a topic without explaining why it was important or why I should care. In many cases, it read as if it had been written by a committee, or maybe the author was just trying a little too hard to appease a lot of different people. Like a lot of books from No Starch, it seems to have been very poorly edited.
