I have the second edition of the LAH and all I can say is this competition is worth it for those who don't.

Actually, everyone, specially end users, needs to understand the administration and security concepts and tips. Books like that are useful not only for the Linux corporative sysadmins, but for the home user that want to have a better control of his machine. In our Internet days, with all that pesky script kiddies, this could be useful books to anyone that want to be secure, good performance systems

I have been running my own GNU/Linux build (using LFS/BLFS instructions) and having a greater understanding of security a sys admin would be great!
