Linux Admin/Security/LAMPS/Develop Books

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:
General Adminstrating/Securing
Installing/Configuring/Optimizing LAMPS
Batch Scripting
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.
