(OT) Beginner's Linux book recommendation

Hi all,

This is a little bit off topic but I thought I might get some good
recommendations from subscribers to this list.

A friend of mine has just installed Linux (err...SUSE) after a few
tries. Now that he has his Linux running, he is curious to start
learning Linux usage. He emailed to know which book is good for learning
Linux. I haven't ever used a beginner's book to learn the basics so I
don't know which one to recommend. Does anyone have some experience in
this regards? Are there books for learning linux worth recommending?
Also it would be perfect if the sale of each copy contributed to the OSS

He wants a "user oriented" book rather than one focusing on
administration. Also I think it should be a general one rather than for
a specific distribution.

Thanks for comments,
