I would like to recomendation for a good book on UNIX.
	Our GCG was just moved to a Unix machine (Irix workstation) and I
now have to learn Unix for the first time.  I am pretty comfortable with 
computers, but my objective here is to spend as little time as possible to
learn the system, so I can spend as much time as possible generating data 
to analyse on the system.  There are lots of books in the library.  I don't 
want all of them, only 1.  The book "Unix for the impatient" has been 
recomended by a friend.  Any comments/suggestions from the net?
	Ideally, I would like a book that gives some breif text description
of the protocols, then lists commands and switches seperately.  I find that 
with this approach, I can read it once and then just refer to the lists
for a breif reminder.
