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.

Well, if you can go through and remove anything you don't need from it that might clear up some space. If you have extra unallocated disk space, you could use something like grub to expand the partition too I suppose.
I agree, 84GB is a huge amount for /. It probably has a very large package archive, and maybe huge log files, and possibly the trash has never been emptied. It's hard to say exactly. Having all those separate partitions, most of which are largely empty, is a serious waste of storage space. At most, you only need /, /home, and /boot. The rest of the folders can be in /. Repartitioning isn't that hard, you just need to do it from a liveCD/liveUSB drive. But before repartitioning, I would consider removing unneeded files from /.
