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.

Regarding LQ's Facebook page: Well I wanted to reply to the post about LQ's Facebook page celebrating their having over 1,000 fans on that page, but I was prevented from doing so by Facebook's verify account script. (It wants a cell phone # to verify your account--which is stupid because not all people have a cell phone nor are all carriers "approved" by FB).
**Too bad LQ can't give them some pointers on a better, fair-er verification system!**
Anyway, this is what I would have commented on that FB page (http://www.facebook.com/LinuxQuestions.org?) had I been able to:
LQ is the first place I go to for answers. I find the people there both nice and helpful. I also like that there are answers for almost all the distros not just a few.
@Xavier and Jeremy:
I hadn't seen this before the other day either. I think it will pop up for you too after some time (seems to be random). I've been a member there since February so that's probably why I'm seeing that now. I'm able to comment on my friends pages but just not on the LinuxQuestions one, so for me (and anyone else having the same problem) that LQ FB contest is not fair because I (and others) cannot post due to FB's stupidity.
This is the thread on FB where others are complaining about the same thing: http://www.facebook.com/help/question.php?id=83056 As you can see, many people are having the same problem as me. As I've said, too bad you guys can't give them some good advice on a fairer verification system!
