This author has done a great job explaining the core basics of linix terminal in a way that is easy to understand and test. If you want a primer on using the most common commands in terminal this book is worth your dollar... i would love a follow up on intermediate commands and their uses. Grep, piping, whatever else! Great, common sense read
