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.
