You don't have to be a Unix expert to quickly realize that Absolute OpenBSD: Unix for the Practical Paranoid, by Michael W. Lucas, 2013 is an excellent resource, well thought out and written book. I knew I wanted it, just after glancing over the acknowledgements and introduction.

I have read 5 or 6 of the 23 chapters and have been able to learn from every one so far. I especially appreciated the sections where Michael extends on the content you can find in the faq for that particular subject. I plan on reading the entire book as time permits.

But even Michael states in his Introduction, " This book is written for experienced Unix users and system administrators". That is why I figured I would look for some beginner books so I can have a better understanding of unix as a whole before moving to more advanced subjects.
