Recommended Books:

"Introduction to GCC for GNU Compilers gcc and g++", by Brian Gough, Foreword by Richard M. Stallman. (2004).

This book is a good read with an emphasis on simple but relevant content. The book is published under the GNU Free Documentation License, and copy can be found here.

Information on purchasing a copy can be found at http://www.network-theory.co.uk/gcc/intro/. Since part of the purchase price goes to raise money to improve and create more free software and documentation, I purchased a copy to read on the train. The book is small enough to fit inside any cargo pants side pockets.
