Linux CLI Filter: Complete Linux Command Line Book?

Is there a book (or a way to have one made) that would list all available Linux commands with options and what they mean for any shell I'm interested in learning? (Currently bash)

I know about man pages, which are great, but I'd really like something in hard copy form that I can take anywhere so I can brush up on CLI commands when I have a few spare minutes.
I'm guessing the commands are different for each shell, so that's a factor here as well, I think.
I only have desktop machines, but even if I had a portable, I'd prefer a book so I could, for instance, take it with me in either of my one and a half "reading" rooms where there are some "water hazards."
Perhaps smoosh all the output from the man pages into a single, formatted doc and have that printed at a print-on-demand joint online?
I had a pretty exhaustive reference that worked well for me when I was getting to know MS-DOS ages ago, so I'm wondering if there is something similar for Linux.
I have two Linux CLI books that I already use, but they only cover the basic commands.
And I know the GUIs are nice, but I'd prefer to learn the CLI.
Many thanks in advance!
