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.

If I had to pick one Linux reference to have on my shelf, what should it be? I'm thinking something that's easy to read, complete, with the sort of tips someone new to Linux (such as myself) would find useful.
I don't know of any books to reccomend - but there is a vast website full of Guides and How tos etc etc at the Linux Documentation Project which you can download in many different formats - there is effectively many books worth of good information here.
