If you bought and grokked the first book and have been using
FreeBSD ever since, do you really need a book of any kind at
this point?  Don't you have enough experience under your
belt to get by without a book?

The operating system books - be it FreeBSD, Linux or Windows,
serve an important function of helping people go from zero to
60 in getting up and going with their operating system of
choice.  But eventually you are going to outgrow them.  There
are always lots more people at 0 so the authors of these
books will never starve, but you need to eventually strike
out on your own.
