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.

There are lots of levels linux competence. I believe that nowadays there are distros that do not require any special skills nor knowledge to use linux successfully. You really do not have to bother about what is happening behind the scenes and still be able to browse the web and play the movies.
If you want to learn the inner workings of Linux however, the world is yours. There are distros that make the low level learning easy, by not making any automatic magic on their behalf so you must do everything yourself and ultimately learn to do it right way. So the choice is yours. Do you want to be just a linux user or expert, there are distros available for both.
