Linux book

Hello,

What kind of book will be a good/appropriate to new learner and beginners?
I'm thinking of Ubuntu.
Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

yes, ubuntu is a good place to start for beginners

you can look at these books; better to find something recent as older books might have deprecated references to older versions of ubuntu
