Whenever I think of fiddling with the terminal—after all that is the  
Mac way, the thing that brings me to a halt is the fear that it is  
easy inadvertently to wipe out one's disk or to create similar havoc.  
So, it is easy to procrastinate and/or turn to the list. Which it is  
in any case.

Just googled "Unix for OS X" and immediately found "Mac OS X For Unix  
Geeks, 4th Edition" exactly the dual of what I need. OK, will try  
harder later on.
