I have "Unix in a nutshell: A desktop reference cover GNU/Linux, Mac OS X
and Solaris" (4th edition) from OReilly and actually use it more than I
expected I would. I primarily use the book as a reference for Unix, Linux,
Mac OS X and Solaris commands but it has other good sections on Bash/Korn,
pattern matching, make, package management, Awk/Sed, CVS and more. Like the
subtitle says the book is more of a reference guide than a book that you
would read cover to cover so I definitely would recommend it as a
supplementary book to those that you are looking at below

Here is the Amazon link -
