I love OpenBSD. It is my first choice for unix, and in servers in general. But learning it can be a bear. Don't get me wrong, the online documentation is great, just a little terse for my taste. I needed text (wording) that has been humanized a bit, and Michael does that in a very conversational way. The book is organized in a very logical and systematic manner. The examples were realistic and easy to comprehend. I felt Michael did a good job of taking unix and putting it into layman's terms. The more experienced will get up-to-speed doing things the "OpenBSD" way, and those new to unix will have a fighting chance. To me, this book is an invaluable resource and the go-to if you want to really learn OpenBSD.
