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.

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

http://www.ubuntu.com/community is a good place to find your way
