    If it is still obtainable, Unix in a Nutshell (O'Reilly) is the most useful I know of. Mine is 1996 edition, but nothing has changed (well, almost nothing).

    Personally I learned a lot from the web. When i needed to know something i just looked up a tutorial and applied it to the thing i wanted to do. I learned it that way faster, by direct example and practice.

    I recomend the Advanced bash scripting guide. (cant post link)
    Look up on google or DDG "Advanced bash scripting guide" and it should be the first result.

    You can learn a lot from it even if you do not consider yourself "advanced" things will just stick.

    Linux in a Nutshell from O'Reilly

    I have the 4th edition, and it covers the commands, vi, bash, tcsh, emacs, sed, gawk, cvs, rcs, Gnome and Kde. 896 pages. I just checked and they are on the 6th Edition now. A great reference book to have on your shelf.
