I recently got the opportunity to start supporting a number of AIX systems, and being an AIX newbie the first thing I did was ask myself how can I learn everything there is to know about AIX (more to come on this topic tomorrow)? Being a readaholic, I decided to wander over to Amazon to see which AIX books were available.
After 10 minutes of searching and reading reviews, I ended up snagging a copy of AIX 5L Administration for $5. That $5 also included shipping! This led me to start looking at the “used” link associated with various other books I really wanted, and the used prices were typically at least 50% off the price Amazon lists for a new book (the book I got was unused, which is new to me!). This may be old news to everyone else, but I like the fact that I can now expand my technical library on the cheap! Thought I would pass this on to my fellow geeks.
