THE best book for Fedora Newbies

I started out in FC1 and got frustrated in short order - went to Mandrake and a lot of things made more sense, but Mandrake didn't seem as "comprhensive" as Fedora. Now I'm back to Fedora and just found an OUTSTANDING book on Fedora.

"Linux for Non-Geeks" by Rickford Grant

I can't say enough about this book... the author holds your hand, but isn't condescending at all. There's a little command-line stuff, but not more than necessary. No need to install from a command line again! After I followed directions and installed Synaptic, all my application installation worries are long gone!

I found the book at a Border's store in Denver.
