Best linux reference book?


Hi,

I was at Chapters yesterday looking for a book on Linux. Some of them seemed *fantastic*, and while the pricetags are heavy they're probably worth it. The selection is good, but I'm not sure which book I should buy

So my question is this:

Whats the best linux reference book? And are they really worth 50 bucks?

I have a whole bloody library. Where am I? Oh, that's right. There is this thing they call the internet!

Learn to search. Google Fravia.

For an introduction to the command line, I still like "Harley Hahn's Student Guide to Unix" You can find it used at the local University bookstore and at online bookstores.

Google "rute user". http://www.google.com/linux your brains out.
