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

I would recommend Linux Bible, 8th Edition http://eu.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-111821854X.html

Please also check the following links:
http://howtoforge.com/howtos/linux/

http://www.cheat-sheets.org/#Linux
http://www.ubuntu.com/community is a good place to find your way
http://www.webmin.com/ Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix.
