Look at the guides at the Linux Documentation Project. I think there's a Beginner's guide to Bash scripting and an Advanced Guide to Bash scripting.

Also consider "Classic Shell Scripting" from O'Reilly

That's where I first read how to script - not particularly advanced, but a nice little project to get you into the swing of things - well worth a try IMO!

if you add "bourne" to that search, the bourne/bash tutorial written by the Bourne shell's author will come up first. and I'm sure adding the name of other shells will narrow it down relevant to the shells you name.
