I'm not sure I have any particular book titles, however there are bash references in my signature as well as in the signatures of many of your fellow members.

In addition they recommend against quite some stuff too:
Quote:
<greybot> The TLDP bash guides are outdated, and in some cases just plain wrong. There's a reason they are not in the topic.

<greybot> Google is NOT a preferred source for learning bash, because almost all the "tutorials" and scripts out there are JUNK. Instead,
ask a good question here or refer to the Guide and FAQ (see topic)

<greybot> Like virtually every other web site you find via Google, StackOverflow is chock full of wrong answers. Verify everything you read
there before using it.
