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.

Have your company (or each individual) pay the Contributing Member subscription. Then you'll have the choice to turn off the banner ads (I don't have any ad in my LQ). You need to remember that this community is a free one, with only volunteers. Jeremy (the site admin) is doing a great job in keeping this site available and I'm sure you'll know this costs a lot of money. Advertising is one of the things that generate income to pay to keep the site alive. So, how would you feel about becoming a contributing member?

So you mean to say that if I don't pay then I should expect to see "naked girls" on "LinuxQuestions.org" when I am in OFFICE?

I think you also need to remember that all people are not rich enough to donate money to others.
This is a technical website and (IMO) the advertisements displayed here should be "civilized" enough so that they don't create embarrassing situations for others.

I don't know what ads get shown on LQ since I don't have them activated. You can always take that up with [edit: email address removed, please use the contact form]. And you don't have to use LQ at the office, that's your choice. Just as it is your choice not to pay as a contributing member, but you know that if you don't the possibility to deactivate ads is not a choice you have.
I'm not even going into a discussion about cultural differences here. But I don't consider ads about women's lingerie (like the screenshot you posted) offending, but that's just me.
