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.

I hope somebody votes for Ada. (But it won't be me!)
Yeah, had to learn Ada back in the early eighties when I was with the DoD, since it was kind of the *official* adopted language (and yet I never used it - Most things were done in COBOL anyway).
I picked C, because it's the basis for most things, but I most certainly would have chosen PL/I had it been in the list, because it's such a kewl language and the compiler runs on Linux too - It's not just for mainframes anymore
Picked up a copy of Learning Perl (Schwartz, Phoenix, d foy) in 2011, and became enamored with the language. Seems like the most appropriate vote for me, even though I used - and deeply appreciate - several languages on the list.
I'm a little surprised Bourne shell and awk are not available as poll choices.
