12 Best Linux Books of All Time

Our goal: Find what the internet ranks as the best Linux books (instead of one person's opinion).

Our process:
1. Search for "best linux books" and study the top 5 articles.
2. Add only the books mentioned 2+ times.
3. Rank the results neatly for you here! 😊
(This took a long time, but we do the research so you don't have to!)

  • How was this list created?

    We searched for "best Linux books", found the top 5 articles, took every book mentioned in 2+ articles, and averaged their rankings.

  • How many books are in this list?

    There are 12 Linux books in this list.

  • Why did you create this book list?

    We wanted to gather the most accurate Linux book list on the internet.

  • Why isn't there a shopping cart to add these Linux books to?

    Our number one rule is "don't try to out-Amazon Amazon". This is why we don't have any of the features they already do such a great job at (no social network features like follow, also no readers page, no get free shipping, no book notes, no related courses, etc...). We only focus on what we're best at, which is bringing you an awesome and accurate list! (by accurate we mean right basics data like publication date... Which you'd also be surpsied at how hard it is to get online).
