Question Need advice about ksh literature

Hi guys

Can you recommend a good book for absolute beginner. I bought KSH93 by David Korn but I don't like it. It's not user-friendly. I need book with easy examples and some exercises.

Can be a video lectures too.

I like "KornShell Programming Tutorial" by Barry Rosenberg. You can get an old decent copy on ebay for about 5 to 10 dollars.
