Project GNU has published a book on using the command line in UNIX like

I can send a PDF to anyone who wants it and it can be converted to text for 
people who prefer that. It  can be posted it on any of the web sites where 
people on this list  have other docs as long as it has its license attached.

So, who wants it?

Happy Hacking,
