Linux Pocket Guide

An excellent, compact reference book for common Linux commands. Anyone that runs a webserver, or even a VPS, would do well to own this book. I have known people that can remember every command they've ever used, but for mere mortals like yours truly, and for everyone subject to senior moments, this is a great time-saver. Linux - the ultimate open source operating system.

Published by O'Reilly, the average review is 4.7/5, so you'd do well to find a better buy.
