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.

Legally it doesn't look like you can, and please don't think we will show you how to get it illegally, if it's possible. It is 16 years old, the 2nd edition he wrote, there are many newer books you'd be safer to use to get started with.
The book (2nd edition 2000) is available on line from the oreilly.com web site, under a GPL licence. Look at the copyright information page.
So, it seems that it is legal to read it online, copy it and even print it, under that licence. There is a link "Online book" in the page.
There are various books, that O'Rilley lists under the Open books category. They are usually out of print or older editions, or books that their authors felt strongly that it should be published under a particular open copyright.
The latest (3rd) edition (2005) isn't free, however.
I see there is a link "Back to: Sample Chapter Index" in each chapter.
I don't know the original book. The online chapter list is the same as the original book's list, in the main product page.
In fact, what is missing from the online pages, is the Index after the appendix D. The link goes to a '404 Not Found' page.
