Pretty much any linux book by Oreily is a good choice. Plus they have all those random drawing on the covers.

The same with No Starch Press they have some good Linux books. In particular The Linux Cookbook and How Linux Works.

Thank you very much for the information, I will start buying this Books from Amazon website as soon as possible, since there is no time to waste with Microsoft after I found my lover " LINUX " it's really a legend especially the shell I love it more than the X

Have a nice day....
