Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Gogul, its the fastest WM i have ever used and it has some nice gui tools like obconf for configuration and obmenu for you guessed it menu writting. It is a little bare when you first install because unlike fluxbox it doesn't have a panel, but if what you want is a simple and fast window manager that just does its job openbox is king
I like Fluxbox not because it won or because more people use it. I like it because it's light and in the same time very customizable. You can also build you own themes without too much problems. Unlike OpenBox which I've tried it has a task-bar built-in so you don't need to search for a good or even better one. The things I run mostly with Fluxbox is unclutter, so that my mouse pointer will dissapear when it's located on a window for too much(but it won't if it's on the root window, i.e. the desktop its self), the fbpager so that I can see what apps I am running on what desktops(I don't really like the fact that when transparency is on and I change the desktop it flickers a bit... maybe someone knows a better one... I really doubt that...), conky set on the root window with double boffer(again I don't like one thing about this one too, the fact that when set with no own window at updates it redraws the whole root window) the best looking system monitor ;-) and xbindkeys, to set some key combinations to start certain apps(although Fluxbox has built-in support...). All these are started from ~/.fluxbox/apps and not ~/.xinitrc.
I also love the flux menu to start applications!
