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'm not a huge fan of testing, until the debian release team announce "it's cooked", but that means it's no longer testing...
unstable gets my vote over testing, freeze or not. packages just go awol from testing which can be annoying - it only comes into it's own as a mixed testing/unstable system IMO.
Another problem with testing at the moment is that too many noobs are running it - and when it breaks, or something doesn't work the same way as 'buntu, they whine and complain (usually at forums.debian.net).
Stable has always been my main install but after retirement I tried Testing and Unstable and prefer Unstable over Testing too. But do believe Wheezy will be the sweet spot for my two year old computer as the 3.2 kernel as solved all my error messages in dmesg.
