I've got a really good one I recieved in school. I think it is a great book; however, it is Red-Hat/ Fedora a la YUM. I think it is still a good book for an Ubuntu person, and even goes into sed and awk, and some shellscripting.. I could bring it down for you to look at.
I would like to get it back one day, whenever that day comes.. No hurry.
