Looking For A Good Book


Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I'm new to linux and I also love to read. I thought it would be a good idea to find a book on linux and read it but I am having trouble choosing which one... does anyone have a suggestion

i don't know of any published book but you can try the guide to slackware linux

http://www.slackware.com/book/

some of the topics in the book apply to slackware but most can be applied to all the distros.
