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 conducting academic research about learning in the Linux community. Particularly in regards to legitimate peripheral participation -- how people learn within the Linux community and as they become more adept how they in turn train others.
Would it be okay to post a link to the survey here?
I wrote Jeremy via private message and the web admin address listed to contact for advertising via email.
Thanks for the replies. I had thought people passing from LUG to other LUGs would get a few respondents. I've contacted different places and need more. If you could spread the word along in your LUGs/lists/forums that would be great.
It will (hopefully) be published in an academic educational technology journal. However, I can see that some place might want to post. The research consists of survey and interviews. The results (with write up) will be ready by February at the latest.
Ah, Jeremy has numerous plates in the air! This means that there can sometimes be a delay if offline stuff intrudes. For the future, feel free to contact one of the mods of the particular forum you wish to post in - if we think it needs bringing to Jeremy's attention we can do so and let you know what's going on.
Anyway, back on topic - I have responded to your survey.
There nothing to stop person from taking survey many times.
Except an overriding sense of moral integrity...
It could have been set up with a list of invited participants; however, that would have necessitated having a large list of invites ready.
We could have solicited people to respond, send us their email address (assuming they only sent us one using one identity) and then set up the invites.
