This book is for any home user who has switched or is thinking of switching to Linux. Based on Red Hat's Fedora Core, Linux for Non-Geeks avoids geeky subjects like server and network setup and concentrates on the subjects of interest to the average home user: Installation, the Internet, playing CDs and audio files, desktop customization, games, downloading software and fonts, USB storage devices, printing, and more. Readers with only basic experience with Windows or another Linux distribution will learn how to do everything on their Linux machine that they are used to doing with Windows. Includes a complete installation of Fedora Linux on two CDs.

Review: Linux for Non-Geeks: A Hands-On, Project-Based, Take-It-Slow Guidebook

User Review  - Tessa - Goodreads

Pretty handy dandy for anyone who wants to learn Linux. It's a little outdated for todays standards, so you might want to check out Ubuntu for Non-Geeks. It's a bit more recent. Read full review
