My Books

I love IT books. They’ve been a massive influence in my IT career. So it’s only right that I give something back…

Below you’ll find a list of books I’ve written. If you buy them on Amazon I’d really appreciate it if you could leave a review (stars) so that others can know if they’re good or not. Cheers!

    Hi Nigel,
    I have just started to read your book and am impressed with the flow and content. I believe that this comes from experience.

    A small observation. In the RAID Concepts chapter, “Microsoft Storage Spaces” has been described – same content – in 2 places – on page 132 & 134. Was this intentional?

    With Best Wishes,

    Enjoyed and learnt from your PluralSight Linux Storage Fundamentals. THANKS

    Hi Nigel
    I just wanted to say that I love your book. Not only meaning the technical deepness and didactical awesomeness, no, I truly like the way you’re writing! (And that’s some big compliment, minding that I am not very versed with the english language)

    Things like this, make the whole book worth to read (technically and literary):

    “Snapshots are not backups! Take this statement, burn this into your brain, RAID protect it with at least double parity, and pin it to the high-performance cache of your brain so that it is always there for quick recall!”

    Such statements made me the first time really (and I mean really) enjoy a technical book! I had to laugh hard and I’m confident that i will never mistake a backup with a snaphot… 😀

    So I want to thank you for this great piece of work, I really appreciate it!

    Hello Nigel,

    I am a big fan of your Linux videos on pluralsight. I am like a super Linux guy at my job due to your awesome training. I was wondering though, will you be clobbering RHEL6 with RHEL7 ?

    I mean things like :

    1. systemd
    2. journald
    3. xfs
    4. Network Manager
    5. Grub2
    6. Rescue Modes
    7. NTP (chrony)
    8. Docker.

    It will be awesome to have this knowledge from you.

    Thanks always for the great courses.
