I think this book it a great way to feel confident about your skills. If you are long time user, I am sure you will learn more. It is so full of material, it would be difficult not to. There is a lot of commands I didn’t know in this book. To me I found chapters zero and one to be the most interesting. I think because it was full of history and general knowledge. While the other chapters were great for problems or getting thing done, I like to know about things, not just how to do them. The book is well organized into various topics from basis of ZFS to repairs.
There are examples dealing with zpools, datasets, disk management. Chapter seven is great because it talks about the snap shot feature and clones. It explains the difference in easy to understand format. If you want to install FreeBSD on to a ZFS, this is covered including possible problems and what to do. I totally recommend this book for anyone interested in FreeBSD (ZFS on Linux) if they are curious about ZFS and want to know more, sysadmins, or users in general. It’s great to use as needed or to read for general knowledge.

- Very in depth.
- Dedicated the whole book to one filesystem.
- I felt like you most definitely need some basic FreeBSD knowledge.
- Having to wait for the Advanced ZFS book to come out.
