'Best' AIX book for beginners ?


I'm starting to learn AIX and looking for some books.
I found lots of IBM redbooks, but which one is 'best' for beginners ?
Could someone suggest one.

thank you

When you say you are a beginner, is that just for AIX or UNIX in general? For instance, if you were already familiar with Solaris, you could use Redbook's Sun Solaris to IBM AIX 5L Migration: A Guide for System Administrators. If you are new to both AIX and UNIX, Redbook's IBM eServer Certification Study Guide - pSeries AIX System Administration may be a good start.

Also, a small investment on Ebay for an inexpensive server, unless you have you you can play with at will, is a worthwhile investment. You could get something quite sufficent for under $50 - just make sure you have the O/S handy
