The first two books that pop into kind are Sed & Awk, published by O'Reilly. Also, learning the Korn Shell by O'Reilly is pretty good. Another Korn Shell book I really enjoy is Korn Shell Programming, By Example published by Que.

Don't forget to search the forum for other people's opinions, and the special FAQ section, where there's actually a Book section...

A godo AWK book I got was "THE AWK PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE" by Alfred V.Aho, Brian W Kernighahan, Peter J. Weinberger

ISBM 0-201-07981-X

It's got some cracking examples in there.. Not many pages, but well worth the money.
