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.

That is out of context and misleading. The full text is -
I've heard you say many times
That you're better than no one
and no one is better than you.
If you really believe that
you know there is nothing to win
and nothing to lose.
From fixtures and forces and friends your sorrow does stem
That hype you and type you making you feel
That you gotta be just like them
It's from To Ramona. I love that song, and much of his writing from that era.
Probably a case of:
Still a man hears what he wants to hear,
and disregards the rest.
"I don't lie. I don't lie. My name is ... . I'm a journalist. I used to be, till I saw the light. That trying to speak the truth is a waste of time because nobody wants the truth. People don't want the truth. God forbid it would all go down in flames. It's the lies that keep the construct going. Don't you see? Spread by the vested interests in the government, and the private sector, and the churches, and the stock exchanges, all fabricating and spinning and telling stories that keep 300 million consumers happy and stupid and spending. Why are you looking at me like I'm crazy? Just stop. I'm not the deluded ones. You are." (c)The Event
