A new book on shell scripting

Over the next month or so, I've decided to read an interesting book which covers one of my favourite topics, shell scripting. The book is Linux Shell Scripting Cookbook. It has been quite a while since I have actually read a book on a programming topic (other than K&R or the like), but I guess it does feel "complete" to gain knowledge from a book and feel as though we have gained at least some mastery over the topic!

Updates on this will follow.
