Greetings Linux User Group Members:
My name is Hollie and I work for a computer publishing company in
California called Apress (www.apress.com).
I would like the chance to offer to you, a free book called "Linux in
Business, A Practical Users Guide" by John Lathrop. "Linux in Small
Business: A Practical User's Guide" shows non-Linux users and
how to achieve immediate savings in almost any office environment by
integrating Linux into their daily operations as a server-Internet,
print, Web, e-mail, database-and as a non-Linux-compatible workstation.
Highlights from this title include:
~Written for the non-Linux user, administrator, and student
~Scenario-based, step-by-step approach to Linux deployment
~Uses a GUI approach to installation, set-up, use, and
~Author John Lathrop's site, www.linuxleap.org, will contain
pre-written configuration files for easy download
John began experimenting with Linux in the pioneering days of
(1996), as a result of frustrations endured while administering a Web
on a remote UNIX server from a PC running Windows 95 via a dial-up
CompuServe connection. He has been a Linux consultant and author since
and he now pushes the Linux operating system and consults from his home
Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He has worked in computer training for many
primarily overseas, and retains an interest in the developing world.
All I ask in return for the free book is your feedback. If you can post
review on your user group website, I'll send you a free
Apress t-shirt. It is important to us at Apress that we reach the
readers.... there's no better place that user groups, right?
Please send me your mailing address and a contact phone number (for
purposes) so when the book arrives later this month, I can send a copy
to you. We will not by any means sell your information to anyone.
I look forward to hearing from you soon! Oh, you can also register your
group on our site to receive free info, t-shirts, and prizes for
With Kind Regards,
