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.

The Linux Answers/Tutorials are seperate from the Wiki. Tutorials don't get posted immediately, they are first screened and vetted - believe me, if they were posted immediately the whole Tutorial area would be a mess.
Hint to anyone reading: do not post a question in the Tutorial area.
Lets see, I guess the answers are "set in stone" like a textbook- reviewed and vetted. Info found there is "fact" the wiki, however, is more alive and growing- like a weed. Info found there should be taken with a pinch of salt (but its up to date)
so, any response on dual posting an answer and in the wiki?
I would also suggest trying to cross link the two - ie:
On the LA - "Click here for a working version with user added notes"
On the Wiki - "Click here for an edited final draft"
Obviously an updated LA could then be submitted once there is significant positive change to the wiki article. This would also involve the LA submitter tidying up the formatting and ensuring that the guide works and is easy to follow.
