Learning Linux command


Hi
i am not so new to linux , i mean its been quiet a time now.I was reading the info pages and i dont think they are much different from manpages.SO if any body cud reffer some good book or tutorial about the major commands (like those mentioned in "info coreutils").
The thing i am really interested in is the command line arguments .I wana master commands like

command -SoManyOptions atonce

But the problem is that i kinda forget them although i have read the info pages , so i as woundering there cud be a book that may take me step by step.

(Right now i've just deleted all the gui stuff on my box , just to be more familiar with the commands)
thanks for any help in advance

After reading a bunch o' stuff, I think the most clearly written is the slackware book. I think I'm actually beginning to understand file structure, why this, why that; this contains this and so on...

You can buy the book or dnl it here.

The book, however, does make slackware look like the best distro .

My $.02

Peace,
