    I had a good experience with How Linux Works: What Every SuperUser Should Know by Brian Ward. It's good for people who are pretty familiar with another operating system and maybe know a little bash (not much though, there is a chapter on basic bash commands). It explains a wide variety of Linux topics, including shell scripting, network configuration including IPTables, C compiling, and installing peripherals, and it takes an approach that is easily generalized to all distributions of Linux, as well as UNIX. And since they're all explained in the Bourne shell, this will teach you lots of useful bash commands that you can use in scripts.

    the best book i have found for any shell programming covers the following topics

    Bash shell
    TCSH shell
    Z shell
    Compilers,
    Development tools
    Perl -Quick reference (very incomplete!)

    and a few other things to boot.

    the Title of the book is Linux Programmers Reference (2nd Edition) Richard Peterson, pub Osborne ISBN 0-07-2123559 it is 440 pages and $20.00 should get it for you.

    The only other resource I use to write shell scripts is the man pages for bash.

    book

    I've got
    Beginning Linux Programming 3rd Edition
    ISBN 0-7645-4497-7
    http://p2p.wrox.com

    thats pretty good covers
    bash, curses, mysql dbase programming, little bit of C and C++
    finishes with device driver writing

    the bash stuff is excellent and covers nice bits like regular expressions.
    the more advanced stuff moves pretty fast if you've no prog experience.

    O'Reilly's Learning the Bash Shell worked great for me:
