I finally found a book locally. Don't know how old it is, but it did mention the old Palm and Windows PDAs. Also Photoshop CS. It's called Ubuntu Hacks and at least it explains some of the commands. It's an O'reilly book.
The freaking shelves were full of how to use MS Office, etc. Macs and Windows for seniors - JC, how much fluff can they write?
Couldn't find a book on Curiosity Rover.
