Using Nmap for Port Scanning

From Rich Rines Ultimate Nmap Scan:

I have been doing lots of InfoSec research recently and have been learning quite a bit about nmap (Nmap is an open source security scanner that is used heavily by the pentesting community. Nmap can be used for several types of enumeration including host discovery, OS/version detection, port scanning, and even has its own scripting engine allowing the user to extend its functionality as desired). After reading what I can only describe as the nmap bible (much the explanations provided for individual flags are heavily based on this book) and talking to some professionals I have a very robust nmap recipe for port scanning.
