The good news is that I was a lead technical editor of Python for Unix and Linux System Administration which just came out.
The bad news is that as my wife called me to tell me that my copy of the book had arrived, I noticed that someone had clipped my car in the parking lot and tore off part of the bumper. It looks like I'll have to replace the whole bumper.
C'est la vie.
Anyway, about the book, it's exactly what the title says it is. If you have a computer science background, this book is not for you. However, if you're a sysadmin trying to learn Python, it's perfect. In fact, when I think of all the sysadmins I've met who do a bit of scripting, this book matches them perfectly.
