What is the BEST book on learning how to use Bash?


I don't like the information provided in "man" about Bash. Also I like the traditional way of having a real book in front of you. So what is the best book to learn bash from????

Just use the web

Basics are at
http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/bashref.html

and
great scripting docs are at

shelldorado.com

If you want an actual book, the ultimate reference would be any book from O'Reilly, or something more readable would be something like Linux and Unix Shell Programming from Addison-Wesley publishers.
