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.

No need to buy anything (at least not for the first 40 days), if you have the non-free repos enabled it is nothing more than
apt-get install rar
That program is shareware, so it is not illegal to show how to get it and how to install it.
Edit: Just searched a little bit for info on that: Simple answer, you can't use p7zip-rar for compressing files, it is only able to extract rar-files, but not to create/compress them. So using rar or one of the more Linux native algorithms, like lzma, xz, bzip2 or gzip would be an option.
well, ... why not possible because linux has rar-free sothg if I remind well, no?
Of course you can use rar or rar-unfree to create RAR-archives. But you can't use p7zip-rar for that, just because the devlopers of p7zip didn't implement that in their program. That is why dugan correctly stated that it is impossible, answering your question how to do that with p7zip-rar.
