Above and beyond what Google turns up:
http://homepage.powerup.com.au/~squadron/
http://www.ulujain.org/binaries/bash.pdf <--- BASH reference
http://www.ulujain.org/binaries/linux.pdf <-- command reference
http://www.ulujain.org/binaries/linuxadmin.pdf <--- admin reference
http://www.ulujain.org/binaries/unixcommands.pdf <--- short and sweet

Try the Linux for Dummies book too.
