Another very good book that introduces sed and other utilities
that are powerful tools in the toolchain of a UNIX user, is the
still classic book of Brian W. Kernighan & Rob Pike:

    The UNIX Programming Environment
    by Brian W. Kernighan and Rob Pike.
    Prentice Hall, Inc., 1984.
    ISBN 0-13-937681-X (paperback), 0-13-937699-2 (hardback).

It's a bit old now, but some of the concepts it introduces are,
in my opinion, central and essential to the every day work of a
UNIX user.
