Looking for Ubuntu book


Hello
New here and looking for a book on Ubuntu which is geared not only for the newbie but will take me to more advanced levels as I learn. Don't want to start a collection of them! This is the forum to ask with great experience.

Also many of what is available is also in Kindle form instead of a hardcopy. Is this a good approach?

There are many Ubuntu books on Amazon but having no knowledge of these I pose my question here.

Thank you.

Welcome to LQ!
You bet there's an Ubuntu guide.
Look at http://ubuntu-manual.org/

Have fun.
Don't know about any Kindle. Sorry. It's a .pdf
Kindle handle a .pdf?
