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.

I write a book about linux that unique form other books, As you know many book about Linux is exist and i want prepare unique chapters.
my 2 cents
i don't understand the sense of this
there are already books about general linux and write a book where you talk about ALL the linux word (history, linux command, desktop, server, shell scripting, etc..) it's a titanic thing..
(Notice also that the author, Jeff Atwood, now has a best-selling eBook, as mentioned in the article.)
From the article:
When you publish a book electronically, you can actually self-publish it (see "kdp.amazon.com" among many others), and in any case you keep most of the royalties ... so that a book which sells for $4.00 might net you considerably more than Resig's $29.54 out-of-print, most of which copies simply wound up in the pulp mill. With electronic publishing, the paper, and all of its associated cost and overhead, is gone. Nothing to print, nothing to schleb around in warehouses and stores hoping that someone will happen upon it, nothing to recycle.
Use the Internet to search for the tools, "sigil" and "calibre." You can target several platforms, including Kindle (Fire), Nook, Apple, and so-on, simultaneously. The money, such as it may or may not be, materializes in your PayPal account with no further ado.
Are computer students really reading books these days? Or are they doing all the learning on computer/internet itself? What is the role of books when information changes everyday?
If so it's probably the students that are getting ready to complete their Red Hat Certification that either they are paying for or their employers are paying for-
I personally know a Professor that teaches (Law) at one of my local Universities and he said;
"All of my students use the internet for their HW and term papers"
He further explained to me that he is tired of telling them to read the chapter from which his lecture came from-
When information changes everyday it gets intresting (not sure how that's kept up on) but IMO w/o the books we wouldn't be able to establish the basic foundations of any practices. Hands on experience is good but w/o the book knowledge "how to" or just the knowledge needed to be known wouldn't be there. Unless, of course we are attending regular lecture or classes; that is-
