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.

Well what are all your favorite linux books and whats great about them? I'm in the market for a new book and am a bit of a newb. What would be the best book to learn slack (excluding the one on their site )?
For your Unix skills I recommend Sam's "Teach Yourself Unix in 24 hours" (written by Dave Taylor). And it's Schwarzenegger. Other than that... read "The Joke" by Milan Kundera. It's a really good book.
Although I would never buy a book with all the online resources out there, I will have to echo the same sentiments as zsejk, that is a great resource. I happened to stumble upon a copy of it in pdf format.
Oh goody!!! I saw O'Reilly's "Linux in a Nutshell" lying about in Barnes & Noble today for only 8 bucks! The catch is that you get an "old" edition (3rd as opposed to the current 4th edition), but the bonus is that you get a kick-ass reference book for really really cheap. So... drag yourself over to the bargain corner at your local Barnes & Noble, and get a ... well, bargain.
