The Linux Cookbook: Tips and Techniques for Everyday Use

I just love cookbooks. A cookbook doesn't have to be about food you know. This one is about little useful tips on how to use your Linux computer.

From this I learnt how to find all really large files which is useful if you want to find out why causes your harddrive to be so surprisingly full:

$ find /usr/local -size +10000k [RET]

Another useful one for finding the total size of a folder is:
$ du -sh Documents
