This is an excellent book and it does exactly what the title suggests, gets you started with Beaglebone. The author, Matt Richardson managed to write a technical book that is easy and enjoyable to read. I read the whole book first and then read it again following clear and very well structured examples.
The book is aimed at people having absolutely no knowledge of Linux. You will learn about setting up of the board, basic commands in terminal prompt, file system structure, writing and running python and bone scripts and of course controlling I/O pins. Every new chapter builds upon what you already know and examples used are both useful and inspiring.
Having previous experience with Arduino only Beaglebone seemed like completely different ball game, I didn't know where to start. This book gave me all the answers I needed. By all means the book is not a comprehensive guide to linux or a project book but also it doesn't pretend to be that.
Does not bother going into too much background, just gets you doing things straight away - I like this.
Some of the code examples did not work for me as printed and needed adjusting to work.
