i like "oreilly linux in a nutshell" (now at 6th edition 2009), network, programming, common task, etc... it's a good overview with a lot of commands and tips. a good book!

Do not get a cookbook. As stated, its just a mix of codes. The oreilly book is good. The book I recommend is THE LINUX COMMAND LINE AND SHELL SCRIPTING BIBLE. Its 723 pages long or so. It has all the basics , navigation,  security aspects, installing programs on different linux flavors, and much more. After the basics, u can get into easy scripting then to advanced scripting and advanced aspects of the shell. This book is really good, and will get u basic/super nub to pro in no time. Its a little long, but it tells u straight up what you need to know
