If I understand this correctly, you are looking for a free book to help you learn the AWK reporting language. This can be found here -- free -- and very exhaustive.

If this is the book you are talking about, no, you will not find it online for free. However, you can go here, and find a library that has it:

Or of course, you can order it from Amazon/Barnes and Noble.
