I was wondering what the best Ubuntu book is and if they sell it in stores. I heard good things about this (http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Ubuntu-Linux-Novice-Professional/dp/1590599918/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1241209755&sr=1-3)one. I'm not completely new to Ubuntu, I started using it last summer then just gave up for some reason, but some things were confusing to me.

You can download a very good .PDF one from the following link:

It is available in print too, but the .pdf is free!

There is no, single, "best book" on Linux.

I'd suggest you go to a large bookseller in your area and peruse what they have for sale. Then, if you find something you like, buy it online. The book you've linked to is a very, very good book, IMO, but then there are a lot of very, very good books on Linux available; it just depends on what you want and how you like it presented.
