I'd really recommend getting Advanced Programming in the Unix
Environment (aka APUE). It does an excellent job in covering a large
variety of topics.
You should probably also read the GNU libc manual. Either "apt-get
install glibc-doc" and point your browser at
/usr/share/doc/glibc-doc/html/index.html, or else go to
Aside from that, I'd recommend reading the bash manpage (or
http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/), bearing in mind that a lot of
what it covers are non-portable to other shells, and that bash is not
the default system shell in Ubuntu.
