Yes, there's "Red Hat Fedora Linux 2 For Dummies":


It's a very good introduction.

I purchased one book that helped me a lot with most distros and it is: Linux Cook Book.
HELP with JAVA, MP3's, Wireless, Repo's, YUM, Partitions, System Monitors, Nvidia, ATI drivers, LIMEWIRE PRO & MORE!.

Easiest and most friendly desktop ever is PCLinuxOS! Includes all this apps. Just try it.

I have the Fedora for Dummies and I felt it did not go into enough detail, but for general answers and how to use linux it is OK....I like the Redhat Enterpise/Fedora Bible...Redhat Unleashed (kinda old book).
You may be able find many e-books on the web as well...

I'd have to recommend Linux Timesaving Techniques For Dummies it has lots of useful tips.

The Linux Cookbook: Tips and Techniques for Everyday Use is very good but a bit dated on some subjects...

Linux Cookbook seems like it has potential. But it will only be released in December. I generally find O'Reilly books to be good. Especially their cookbook series and their hack series.

One problem with books specifically about Fedora is that parts of them become obsolete quite fast due to the release schedule of Fedora Core. i.e. 3 versions within about a year. So alot of time online help files or forums will be a better place to find info.
