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.

By the way, can anybody recommend good GUI file manager that does not need extra libraries, like Thunar > xfce stuff, Dolphin > KDE stuff etc.
If you have worked much on Windows, you should know the Total Commander. Any Windows admin that does not know the Total Commander really needs to hang their head in shame. There is a kinda-clone for *nix that is called Krusader. It's not bad but alas has not been updated for almost three years and appears to be a dead project. I've used it and others but I keep going back to the Midnight Commander. I grew up with the Norton Commander back in the 1980s and 1990s, and later the Windows Commander (until Microsoft bullied them into removing the word "windows" from their name, now they are the Total Commander).
Alas, I have not found a gui file manager for *nix that does it for me, which is why I stick with the Midnight Commander.
