The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction (William E. Shotts, Jr.)

Now that you've experienced the gleaming, point-and-click exterior of your Linux PCs, descend below it and utilize the power of the command line to discover its interior.

Beginning with your very first keystrokes on the terminal, the Linux Command Line guides you through building complete programs in Bash, the most well-liked Linux shell. You'll pick up the timeless knowledge that has been passed down through the ages by gray-bearded, mouse-shunning geniuses along the way, including file navigation, environment setting, command chaining, pattern matching with regular expressions, and more.

Author William Shotts also discloses the philosophy underlying these tools and the rich heritage that your desktop Linux machine has received from Unix supercomputers of the past in addition to this practical knowledge.
