Hi,

I am presently working through "Mastering UNIX Shell Scripting: Bash, Bourne and Korn Shell Scripting for Programmers, System Administrators, and Unix Gurus, Second Edition" (2008), authored by Randal K. Michael and published by Wiley Publishing Inc. (ISBN: 978-0-470-18301-4).

This text contains many excellent scripts for automating system administration tasks.

The bash man page is awesome, but the single best reference except that would be: Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide

Good luck!

Expert Shell Scripting (ISBN-13: 978-1430218418) was written by an administrator as a reference for an administrator.

Need next level.

"Mastering Unix Shell Scripting: Bash, Bourne, and Korn Shell Scripting for Programmers, System Administrators, and UNIX Gurus."

This book is coming next week by DHL.

Hoping to raise my game.
