How much of the book deals specifically with Unix? I'm looking to learn some basics and a good book would be just the thing I'm looking for.

I have the "Learning Unix for Mac OS X" by O'Reilly. It is a well written book, that I purchased mainly out impulse and curiousity. It answers the questions that you ask, but is not a detailed investigation into Unix. What I would recommend would be to go to:
Learning Unix for Mac OS X and check out the table of contents, and look over the sample chapter.

Then if you need more information, then look into:
Unix in a Nutshell
That goes into a lot of detail and is an excellent reference.
