This book is fantastic. Follow the instructions and actually enter all the commands as they happen. Digging into seemingly simple questions really helped me grok everything. I think I'll give one more read to the section on traps, but otherwise I feel so much stronger in my BASH-FU. Do you work in the terminal? Do yourself a favor and read this.
Nice read! #learnbashthehardway Good work @ianmiell

This book has been so valuable to me. I have used bash as needed for a couple years in bit of a haphazard, "just find things that work type way"(not something I am proud of but just being honest). This book provides a great framework for really understanding the topics covered. I do not come from a CS background in school so books like this are what makes it possible for me to do the work I love.
