IMHO all Linux prints are useless at the best. They are always out of 
date before they hit shelves.

The best source is google. All info needed for anyone willing to learn 
Linux is freely available on Internet. And there is plenty of it. Do not 
waste your hard earned money on any Linux books, especially books for any 
particular distro.
