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.

Written with a very clean style, and attention to detail
Thinner cover than most paperbacks, and not quite so good as a reference
Why I like this book:
-Avaliable online for free
-What he covers is some things that most people have a harder time grasping when they first learn the language - 100+ pages devoted to templates, etc.
-A lot of info for the price
-Exemplary accuracy - I haven't found 1 typo in the example programs
What I dislike about this book
-Cover design not so good as volume 1
-Thin cover - feels cheap
-Written with Word XP
-Font used is harder on my eyes than some books(obviously because they used some m$ font ;) )
-Due to the tutorial style of this book, I might have to look through a bit more fluff to get an answer if used as a reference
However, most of the dislikes, although there are a few, are really very small problems,and I would still HIGHLY recommend this book
you can get the book for free from www.MindView.net - that's his website, and he meant it to be free
note that after reading it onscreen for awhile, you will probably find yourself wanting the book in printed form, as I did, so beware if you are short on cash...
