One book that I have found quite useful is "Red Hat Linux Networking and System Administration" by Terry Collings and Kurt Wall. It's from Red Hat Press
Based on the name, it's slanted towards RedHat/Fedora distros.
I too am a fan of books as well as online documentation. Just something about lugging that big 'ole bound text around with ya.
