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.

Looking for some linux books for various topics. Even if I have mastered how to find something on google, the time of weeding through this and that and reading it all, its just not efficient.
Things I want to learn about linux:
Developing Commandline Programs/GUIs
These are some of the many things. The reason so many, b/c most of them will overlap and benefit the knowledge of the others. I am a RedHat user now, but the books do not to necessarily be redhat specific. I am also trying to get used to command line as of now, and the only GUI type thing I use on the servers is remote via Webmin.
I have had some jobs to do such as migrationg mailserver and migrating webserver/access db/asp. I just want to be able to be more efficient.
Not so much looking for book suggestions, seen them, as a website with polls/comparisons/more reviews (amazon/bn not alot on the more popular linux books). Cuz I am going to college and don't have the money to waste on a book not needed/helpful.
