Over a year ago, I released the Arch Linux Handbook, a print copy of the Arch Linux Beginners’ Guide. It proved to be far more popular than I expected, with nearly 400 copies in print.
Of course, the Beginner’s guide is a community edited document for a rolling release Linux distribution, and after a year, the Arch Linux Handbook became somewhat dated. So I’ve created a second edition. It is currently available directly from the eStore and will be available on Amazon within a couple weeks. The International Amazon sites, other booksellers, and brick and mortar stores should have the book available for order after about six weeks.
I would like to extend a huge thank you to both Jules Pitsker and Branko Vukelic. Jules is the motivating force and primary maintainer behind the online Beginners’ Guide. His tireless and thankless contributions have turned it into the exceptionally well-written and comprehensive document that it is. Branko is the best designer I know, both for print and web based materials. He did a terrific job on this handbook cover.
