Book for Windows | Linux

Can anyone recommend some good books for windows or Linux.

Like admin guides I have a good understanding of both but want to gig deeper.

In the context of what Jamie.R has asked for, this is a good resource for securing Linux from an Administrator's perspective.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hacking-Exposed ... 0072262575

However, from the reviews in the above link, those more interested in a hackers perspective would probably find the second edition more useful.

A good free resource is the Debian Administrator's handbook:

Re: Book for Windows | Linux

If you really want to dig deep into Windows, you can't go wrong with the Windows Internals Series by Mark Russinovich:

Re: Book for Windows | Linux

The single most useful book I had when learning to be a Linux system admin (Unix admin too) was the second edition of this book:

Re: Book for Windows | Linux

For Linux, I like this one:

Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting Bible, Second Edition [Paperback] by Richard Blum & Christine Bresnahan

For Linux/Unix

Unix Complete is a good read
