I'm looking for any books that will help me understand commands used in Terminal, would this be of any use?

That's 2009 .. so dont expect it to be current.

That said, the command line stuff should mostly be relevant.

I did a search on words 'ubuntu' and 'terminal'
that book was the first one...
most of the rest were older even, some results were even hardware :o

There is no argument in favour of proprietary software that doesn't boil down to "I don't care about freedom, privacy or security, whether yours or mine".
