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.

Working with Linux isn't something you learn on one day and it isn't learnt to you by others (others can give you tips, putting you in the right direction) but the best way to learn how to use Linux , is testing/doing it by yourself
in a couple of days testing/writing scripts in Linux brought me a long way
If you got more specific questions, feel free to post them
How to stay away from a dual boot until you really know a lot if you have a windows system that you need. If you do have windows then consider a virtual machine. Free way to easily run linux that is real safe to windows. (if you have a newish system)
These are the three references, in addition to LQ, that have helped me the most. I didn't stumble on the About dot com one until I had been using Linux for several years and wish I had known about it when I started--it's very well designed for new Linux users.
