If you can browse the web then I believe that you can find a reasonably good 
online versions of both Linux and Debian specific books. As far as I know most 
regular linux books do not covers topics like dselect, but books that have 
some more details about specific Linux distro probably do cover it.
BTW: If dselect is what you are currently most interested in then I would read 
the debian FAQ and the dselect article that can be found on debian CDs where 
the various diskette images are found.
