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.

Can you be more detailed and provide some info?
Did you make bootable USB stick? How did you put ISO to the stick? If you have stick with iso, how do you trying to boot from stick? Does your BIOS in MBR or EFI mode?
ISO is a file ready to put it to CD/DVD or to USB stick. If you put it to the stick correctly, you will be able to boot from stick. If you just copied iso file to stick, it will not make it bootable. You need to create bootable stick from iso file using special program like Unetbootin. Did you used some kind of program to create bootable stick? If no, download it here: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
and follow the instructions.
If you already created bootable stick with such a program, you need to boot into your stick live OS (LinuxMint).
How to do it depends on your hardware model/brand.
In some quirky BIOSes, for booting from USB, you need to set it to boot from a "hard disk"
and then in a separate BIOS option, I needed to change the order of the "hard disks" to put the
USB device first.
Very confusing to say the least.
I am a little confused by the OPs question. Is the problem with writing the image? Or booting it?
