When you are moving to a new Linux Distribution as a Sys Admin, it will be a good idea to know a little about its file system, packaging and over all working. Debian 7: System Administration Best Practices focuses on the migration of a seasoned sys admin from other Linux distro to Debian as well as a new sys admin starting with Debian.
Debian 7: System Administration Best Practice is written by Rich Pinkall Pollei who has over 30 years of experience in the field of IT. He has focused on all the things that a beginner sys admin to Debian would need.
The book is divided in to 7 chapters. First chapter mainly gives you some background of Debian as a Linux distribution. Second chapter focuses on file systems in Debian. Third and fourth chapter focus on Debian package management and configuration. Last three chapters are about system management and security.
As a sys admin, the last three chapters will come handy to know how to handle various common tasks and issues. It will also acquaint you with tools and some commands along with best practices. It also highlights quick tips and notes separately for a quick revision/overview.
Overall the book is a concise form of various how-to tutorial and will come handy for quick reference.
