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.

Hello, i would like to suggest me a good rolling release distribution. I use ubuntu, but I would like a distribution that allows me to tinker more with stuff and learn more about linux instead of offering an out-of-the-box OS
Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a rolling distribution based on Debian Testing.
At the moment, it comes as a 32-bit live DVD with a Gnome desktop.
The purpose of LMDE is to look identical to the main edition and to provide the same functionality while using Debian as a base.
Think of a car that you build from scratch, using some default components, can either be 100 hp or 350+ hp, you pick your engine, the interior furnitures, the suspensions, tires, the chassis framework to be suited to the weight of your components and the power of your engine, the instruments for your panel... etc.
I'd second the Debian Testing or Arch recommendation. Arch is more bleeding edge, Debian (despite being the testing branch) more stable. IMO, Debian probably a LITTLE easier to get set up and running, but either one is actually quite easy if you read through their pages, or go to various forums and get quick install guides made by users.
