It is.  Now under new name "Debian Reference".  It is too long for
"Quick" according to Josip :).

"Linux Cookbook" by Michael Stutz is listed under "Debian books" :
http://www.debian.org/doc/books.  There is web page for it too at:

If you ask me why these book titles which is also available in online
form are not in standard http://www.debian.org/doc, I can list few
excuses but not good ones :(

dwarfs-debian-guide and linuxcookbook are:
 not GPL
 not in debiandoc-sgml but in LateX or texinfo

But they are
 are both debian packages and DFSG compliant (main)
