Yes, any book with a title like "exploring Unix" is a good starters book. 
Linux is Unix that got onto lots more hardware from a commands perspective 
and for now commands perspective is what you need to get your hands 
around.  From an architecture standpoint Linux and Unix do have 
differences but you only learn those as you get advanced enough to go 
exploring around in the kernel.  A kernel on Linux is the Dos and Windows 
equivalent to  Recording for the blind have a few of these 
"Exploring Unix" books each a bit different than the others.  If you were 
to read through each you'd have a more rounded knowledge of the subject 
but one should do for your purposes.
