Try "Linux Shell Scripting with Bash".

There are also plenty of online howto guides - see tldp.org.

tldp.org, as already stated. Often recommended is "Advanced Bash scripting Guide" by Mendel Cooper. It is, however, a real boat anchor.

I would start with:
Bash Guide for Beginners, by Machtelt Garrels (at TLDP)

Classic Shell Scripting, from O'Reilly

Hi.

I second the Classic Shell Scripting.

You might also like the Quigley below. The edition I have is about half the length of the current edition. If you like examples, I think you would like this ... cheers, makyo
