The 2nd edition of Greg Lehey's book introduced me to FreeBSD. I have
purchased the most recent edition; and I also have Michael Lucas' book,
which I find very helpful.
Both books are excellent; but the authors have different writing styles.
My suggestion is to read a chapter from each book that covers the same
topic, and see which style you're more receptive to. Use the second
book as an additional reference **while** you read the first book.
