If you want to know more about the power of the Linux command line and tools
a good book is "Unix Power Tools" from O'Reilly, despite the name it's almost
all applicable to Linux; and it's more about tips than power-tools, as most
of the "Power Tools" it discusses are GNU tools already available on almost
every Linux system. A good general reference work is "Linux in a Nutshell"
but it really teach all that much beyond the man pages; although of course
it's clearer than man pages. I'm reading now the new "Linux Administration
Handbook" by Nemeth et al., it's very useful although not for beginners.
