Was curious if anyone could point me in the right direction to find a good reference book for the CLI. I know it is based of of Debian but there are quite a few things out there. Thanks in advance.

Linux is Linux, So any book that deals with shell commands will be useful. The only things that changes from distro to distro is the packagemangers, file location and sometimes custom scripts. If you are looking for a great book to buy then this book here is hands down the best Linux CLI/Shell book there is.
Amazon.com: Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting Bible (9788126516872): Richard Blum: Books (http://www.amazon.com/Linux-Command-Shell-Scripting-Bible/dp/047025128X)
