I'm always a little hesitant when I see reviews of the book. It's irrational, but I guess it's a little bit like being worried that people are going to tell you that your kid isn't the smartest in the class, or is ugly. That's why I sat on the review from Linux Format May 2006 until today, and only read it just now. Wow. "This is probably the best Linux book you will buy all year". I guess it doesn't get clearer than that.
All I can say is "thanks Linux Format". They commented on the lack of colour figures in the examples as well, and once again I should point out that there are colour versions available online and as a download. A colour revision of the PDF version of the book is also currently in the works.
