I know I don’t do this often, but I like free stuff. Free and good stuff.
As a amateur programmer(in addition to video editor, blogger and more), I cannot be more elated to present to you this precious gift by William Shots.
This book is superb and definitely deserves a praise, like the other publications from NoStarchPress.
Hopefully this will teach me more about my RaspBerry Pi, which was acting as paperweight after I got another HTPC.
Designed for the new command line user, this 537-page volume covers the same material as LinuxCommand.org but in much greater detail. In addition to the basics of command line use and shell scripting, The Linux Command Line includes chapters on many common programs used on the command line, as well as more advanced topics.
This book is well suited to Raspberry Pi users (especially if you are running Raspian) who want to learn how to get more control of their Linux system.
And, hey, it’s free!

I recently just bought this. I’ll be starting my programming course in college soon and felt that I need to prep myself for the rat race. This book requires a basic understanding of C preferably to understand. It’s easy to read even for a newbie programmer like me. The book packs quite a few pleasant surprises that I think would help me along the road. This book is not going to be your main textbook for studying programming and is not intended to be, but I’ve personally found it to be a great supplementary reading material for the rookies.
