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.

Hey, I'm really like interesting commands for the command line so I thought I'd ask people who've used Linux a lot.
The only one I know is:
jp2a (JPG toASCII), a small program which converts JPG images to ASCII. It's an amazingly fun program to use, and everybody think it's awesome to be able to view images in ASCII. If you want to view a photo which isn't JPG you can simply use the convert program and pipe it in.
Please post some cool commands you've witnessed over the years, and explain a little about them I know you've got some
Sort of related to this subject. There's a relatively new live CD devoted entirely to the CLI. All sorts of applications, plus some instructions, to get people used to using the CLI. I've burned it, but not tried it yet. INX: http://inx.maincontent.net/index.html
