I can recommend the book A Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors and
Shell Programming.


It can be had for $30 and it is a big book.  It has lots of demos and
examples.  While it will not necessarily tell you what tool would be best
for a particular job it will tell you how to use the tool well.

The first chapter is a bit basic and they go into a lot (maybe too much)
detail on the different editors it has good information.  They also have a
quick list of the main command line utilities with a single line of what
they do.

It is like having simplified man pages with some extra examples but in book
