The book I've gained most from in trying to learn linux has been
_Think Unix_ by Jon Lasser (Que, 2000). It does a good job of teaching
how to approach tasks when using a unix-type system of whatever
variety. Instead of overwhelming the reader with details on specific
commands, the book teaches how to use unix commands together to achieve
powerful results. _Think Unix_ plus a handbook like _Linux in a
Nutshell_ (O'Reilly, 2000)--which is mostly just man pages--strikes me
as a pretty good start.
