Below is a short list of basic books for newbies. I have given a
few details about each. Apart from these, there are
distro-specific books that are available. But the ones below are
the ideal start. All are available from Shroff Publishers and
Distributors http://shroffpublishers.com/

Linux for non-Geeks & Ubuntu Linux for non-Geeks -- Rickford Grant
(probably the most painless guides for newbies, they get you
going, but do not help you understand Linux much)
Linux Pocket Guide -- Daniel J. Barrett (a must-have, short
command reference and basic intro. Cheap, a handy size to carry
How Linux Works -- Brian Ward (probably the best intro. to Linux).
Linux Cookbook -- Michael Stutz (a useful reference)

I wept because I had no answers, until I met a man who had no
questions -- John David Stone
