Have you tried the Debian Handbook? While it's written for Debian, most of 
it applies to Ubuntu. It's written for admins with an emphasis on the 
terminal, but should certainly explain how system files work and has lots of 
tips and tricks. As an example, it has a very good chapter on setting up and 
installing Debian in a virtual machine with various packages. Donations are 
appreciated and I think you can buy it, but it's also available for free 
online in various formats, including a Debian package. It's written by 
Debian developers but it isn't written for a developer audience. I highly 
recommend it and I've found it to be useful.
