Absolute OpenBSD, UNIX for the Practical Paranoid is a book about the Unix-like OpenBSD operating system, written by Michael W. Lucas, author of Absolute BSD and Cisco Routers for the Desperate. It is a guide to OpenBSD designed for seasoned Unix users. The book assumes a level of understanding of POSIX operating systems; their design, commands and permission controls. It was written at the time of the 3.4 release, thus some information became dated within only a few months when the next OpenBSD version was released.

The book contains troubleshooting tips as well as background information on the system and the commands it covers and examples to assist with learning.

2nd release[edit]

On May 13, 2011 the author announced that he was writing a second edition to be released some time in 2012 (April 2013 as of No Starch Press web page). This time the technical reviewer is Peter N. M. Hansteen, author of The Book of PF.[1]
