I've got several, mostly from book clubs. I like the "Complete Reference"
books as well as the "Platinum Edition" series with all different computer
One book that I consider indispensible, though not a "reading" book per
se, is "Linus Command Instant Reference". It's written by Bryan
Pfaffenberger, who knows how to explain things without "talking down".
It's published by Sybex.
I used this book just the other night to help me salvage my mail and a few
documents when my FC2 install crashed and burned. (Haven't had time to
resurrect it yet so, yes I'm using winders to write this; so shoot me)
Anyway, hope the recommendations help.
